Researchers as PhD Students are required at Division of Photonic Crystal Fibre (PCF) Science, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany in all fields of its research. Max Planck Society is a global foremost research institution. MPS counts in the top position of world institutions in the standing of reference rates and gross influence.
Researchers point of view the Max Planck Society is Germany’s most successful research organization. Since its establishment in 1948, no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates have emerged from the ranks of its scientists, putting it on a par with the best and most prestigious research institutions worldwide.
The research areas are as follows:
- Particle trapping and opto-mechanics in hollow core PCF
- PCF design and fabrication
- Ultrafast nonlinear optics in gas-filled hollow core PCF
- Generation of deep and vacuum ultraviolet light
- Super-continuum generation
- Orbital angular momentum in twisted PCF
- Photo-chemistry (with biological applications) in liquid-filled hollow core PCF
- Numerical modelling of linear and nonlinear systems
Successful student will have enthusiastic interest in high risk revolutionary research, and will join a large and passionate team of PhD students, postdoctoral scholars and visitors working in a well funded active research group, based in widespread new laboratories.
- Max Planck Society is interested in increasing the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore openly encourages women to apply.
- The Max Planck Society is dedicated to increase the number of persons with disabilities in its personnel and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals.
