DTU Fotonik at Technical University of Denmark has 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.
Responsibilities and tasks
- One PhD project will primarily focus on theory, while the other project focuses on nanofabrication and experimental characterisation:
- Project A keywords: Quantum theory of nanolasers; modelling of ultrafast dynamics and modulation; quantum noise properties; quantum dots and photonic crystals.
- Project B keywords: Fabrication of nanolasers; e-beam lithography; experimental characterization of fundamental laser properties, including noise and dynamics.
- Candidates should have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree.
- Candidates with a strong background within optics and photonics, nanofabrication, laser physics, or applied mathematical physics are preferred.
- Submit online application and must be submitted as one PDF file containing all materials to be given consideration. The file must include:
- A letter motivating the application (cover letter)
- Curriculum vitae
- Grade transcripts and BSc/MSc diploma
- Excel sheet with translation of grades to the Danish grading system (see guidelines and Excel spreadsheet here)
