Qualification Details

It is an advantage if you have some of the following specific qualifications:

  • Cleanroom fabrication
  • Finite-element computer simulations
  • Metamaterials
  • Strong-field light-matter interactions

It is also an advantage if you possess some or all of the following general qualifications:

  • You have a strong capacity for problem solving
  • You enjoy an international environment
  • You enjoy travelling
  • You can complete tasks on time
  • You are well formulated in English, and can write scientific reports and manuscripts for publication at a high level
  • You have a desire to advance both professionally and personally

As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent).

Responsibilities/Job Description

The purpose of this post-doc project is to develop and fabricate our next generations of metasurfaces using electromagnetic theory, numerical simulations and precise cleanroom work. Examples of metasurface design elements include e.g. superlattices, 2D materials and ingenious use of surface plasmon polaritons with graphene. In the fabrication part of the project, you will utilize a broad range of methods ranging from e-beam lithography, physical etching, thermal processing to chemical modifications. Each metasurface will be analysed and tested in our THz-laboratories, allowing for fast feedback and optimisation.

The candidate selected for this position will drive his or her own research independently, but in collaboration with an extensive team of more than 20 researchers and engineers. The candidate must therefore show a good balance between independence, curiosity, and service to the project team. Therefore, the position requires a strong will to complete tasks in an efficient, detailed, and collaborative manner.

About the Project/Department

We are looking for a dedicated postdoc candidate with an interest in metasurfaces as well as infrared and THz light detection. As a successful candidate, you will be working with an international team both at DTU Fotonik and our collaborators at Hamamatsu Photonics in Japan. You will enter an ongoing project where we develop a novel class of infrared light detectors based on metamaterials and vacuum electronics, which in conjunction form photomultiplier tubes sensitive to the entire infrared spectrum. A special focus in this project will be put on the detection of the far-infrared frequency part, namely the THz frequencies.

The purpose of this post-doc project is to develop and fabricate our next generations of metasurfaces using electromagnetic theory, numerical simulations and precise cleanroom work.

Therefore, the position requires a strong will to complete tasks in an efficient, detailed, and collaborative manner.

At DTU Fotonik we aim to offer education, research and innovation of the highest standard, and our focus on application-oriented research enables us to work across many engineering disciplines and research areas, such as IT and the medical and health sciences. We have a close collaboration with researchers from all over the world, just as we collaborate with industry and public authorities about the dissemination of solutions based on photonics engineering as their key enabling technology. Our laboratories are world-class, and internationally we are at the top.

The atmosphere in the Department is informal, and our physical surroundings ensure that students and researchers can work in close proximity. This promotes knowledge sharing and an exchange of ideas that may spark new research and more start-up companies. We work closely together with our students, regardless of their passion being basic or applied research, as new breakthroughs in both discoveries and applications are needed.
