About the project

Integrated photonics has come of age, enabled by nano-fabrication technologies. We seek a talented applicant to advance the development of novel on-chip sources in the 2-micron wavelength window, coupled with integrated modulation and detection schemes.


The 2-micron band has become a promising candidate for the next communication window and there are also several sensing applications such as glucose detection. Capitalising on our advanced cleanroom facilities you would work in a team engineering active and nonlinear materials, and structures, as well as silicon photonics integrated circuits, that will underpin new functional communications and sensing devices on the silicon photonics platform.

We are looking for an eager and conscientious applicant to develop processes for developing active and non-linear configurations that will address unrealised opportunities for IR-photonic integrated circuits. Your role will include design and development of 2-micron lasers coupled with non-linear and functionalised optical-waveguide circuits leading to new operating regimes and applications.
