  • Hands-on expertise in optical characterization of photonic devices (lasers or photodetectors) is a must for this position
  • Experience with cleanroom fabrication routines
  • Excellent written and spoken English language skills

Responsibilities/Job Description

For the SNF project LIVE-EDC we are looking to hire a post-doc with expertise in optical characterization and nanofabrication. The project focuses on advancing our monolithic InGaAs detector technology towards single photon detection by combining it with photonic crystal design for extreme dielectric confinement.We have recently demonstrated high-speed InGaAs detectors monolithically integrated on SOI and directly coupled to SOI waveguides. Presently we are working on optimizing the performance towards single-photon applications.For the Laboratory for Nano and Quantum Technologies in collaboration with IBM Research Europe – Zurich we are looking for a Postdoctoral Fellow for optical characterization and nanofabrication

Your tasks

  • Establish optical characterization routines for scaled photodetectors
  • Develop device fabrication in the cleanroom and support the device fabrication team by developing processing routines
