Qualification Details

The candidates are expected to have experience in laser-based research, and in the development of electronics and optoelectronics components for experiments using laser technology. We are seeking enthusiastic candidates with a keen interest in setting up new laser systems and learning new techniques. More specifically, the candidate should have a solid background in operating CW laser systems including control of output powers, polarization states, linewidths and frequencies, as well as an understanding of analog and digital electronics for experimental control. Relevant methodology includes laser frequency stabilization using optical frequency combs, rubidium atomic clocks, and GPS synchronization.

Applicants must hold a PhD degree in Physics or Optical Engineering or similar, and be able to document relevant experience, as outlined above.

Responsibilities/Job Description

Your tasks include:

  • Running and maintaining optical frequency combs
  • Servicing existing CW laser systems including commercial external cavity diode laser systems, TiSa-lasers, fiber-lasers and quantum cascade lasers
  • Developing (electro-)optical setups for controlling the frequency and shaping the power level of CW laser
  • Help setting up experimental control systems based on the platform ARTIQ (ARTIQ)
  • Developing electronics in collaboration with the Department’s electronic workshop
  • Supporting with technical aspects in connection with proposal writing
