Department of Electrical Engineering opens applications for a 3 year PhD position as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network Program on Convergence of Electronics and Photonics Technologies for Enabling Terahertz Applications–“CELTA”. The goal of the “CELTA” project is to offer PhD students with a wide array of skills in both electronics and photonics, essential to meet expectations for Terahertz systems.
Department of Electrical Engineering and the “CELTA” project conglomerate consist of 11 partner universities and a high number of allied research institutes and companies.
- Project concentrates on the challenges linked to the signal generation in the 0.1-1 THz frequency range by using pioneering transistor-based active circuit approaches.
- Research shall study circuit techniques to exhaust the potential for operation near or above the frequency limit (fT and fmax) set by current InP HBT technologies.
- These circuit techniques must be based on the non-linear characteristics of the InP HBTs and exploit superior concepts such as Gm-boosting, neutralization, stacking, etc.
- The outcome expected of the study will be chip sets representing highly efficient frequency multiplier chains allowing to extent the frequency range for transistor-based sources sub-harmonically pumped up-conversion mixers for efficient generation of odd harmonics.
Qualifications and Requirements:
- Sc in Electrical Engineering or equivalent.
- Experience in Radio Frequency and microwave circuit design. Understanding of integrated circuit (IC) techniques.
- Basic acquaintance of specific simulations software (ADS, HFSS, Cadence etc)
- Excellent grasp of English (written and spoken) as well as technical writing
- Submit online application.
- The file should include the following: cover letter, CV, Grade transcripts including bachelor’s and master’s degree details.
