PhD Scholarships in Nanolaser Physics and Integrated Photonics

Applications are invited for a PhD position in sustainable development to join Technical University of Denmark. The funds for this position are available for 3 years. Applications should be sent before January 31, 2020.

We have open PhD projects within an evolving area of nanophotonics, funded by an ERC Advanced Grant from the European Research Council. The overall goal of the project is to explore, experimentally as well as theoretically, new types of nanophotonic devices based on so-called Fano resonances. These devices have rich and interesting physics, largely unexplored, with the potential to drastically reduce the quantum noise of nanolasers and increase their speed. These properties are important for future integrated photonic circuits with ultra-low energy consumption as well as for applications within quantum technology.

The ERC project targets the development of new theory for Fano lasers, fabrication of devices in DTU's state-of-the-art cleanroom, as well as experimental characterization in DTU Fotonik's advanced optical laboratories. We have recently made the first proof-of-principle demonstration of semiconductor Fano lasers based on semiconductor quantum dots in photonic crystals, and now we wish to pursue new ideas and applications. With the present call, we wish to strengthen our theoretical activities on nanolaser physics, as well as the fabrication and experimental characterization of the lasers and related devices. The successful candidates will join a dedicated team of highly motivated researchers, where we emphasize strong interaction between experiment and theory, independent thinking and team spirit. One PhD project will primarily focus on theory, while the other project focuses on nanofabrication and experimental characterisation: Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is 3 years. The approximate salary per year is DKK 382,000 (EURO 51,200) including pension.
