Ph.D. grant Physics / Engineering / Material Science in “High-power visible-near-IR Supercontinuum sources for spectroscopic photoacoustic microscopy” at the , Department of Photonics, Technical University of Denmark (DTU)

Deadline: 30 September 2016

Duration: 3 year

Granting organization: Marie Sklodowska Curie Initial Training Network SUPUVIR (SUPercontinuum broadband light sources covering UV to IR applications).

Project description
Projects objectives are:

  1. To improve kHz repetition rate supercontinuum sources in the visible and near-IR with respect to pulse energy, noise and repetition rate for spectroscopic multi-wavelength PAM and other spectroscopy applications.
  2. Developing a flexible diode-modulated pump laser, as well as by fibre design, fibre tapering, and fibre concatenation.
  3. A spectroscopic PAM demonstrator will be developed that uses the improved supercontinuum source and an acousto-optic tunable filter for wavelength selection.
  4. Complete system tests will be performed
  5. Applicability range for the supercontinuum sources will be determined. 

Required Qualifications

  1. Master’s degree or a very good Ist degree in Physics / Engineering / Material Science,
  2. A track record within the areas of nonlinear optics, fibre optics and waveguides, and laser physics.
  3. Candidates must be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers,
  4. Should have not been awarded a PhD degree.
  5. Researchers can be of any nationality.

Salary and appointment terms
The salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD degree students. The period of employment is 3 years.
