FRAUNHOFER-INSTITUTE FOR TELECOMMUNICATIONS, HEINRICH HERTZ INSTITUTE, HHI
PHOTONICS IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AND INNOVATIVE AREAS OF APPLIED RESEARCH. HHI HAS ESTABLISHED A LEADING POSITION IN OPTICAL DATA TRANSMISSION AND IS INCREASINGLY USING THIS EXPERTISE FOR NOVEL PHOTONIC SOLUTIONS IN SENSOR TECHNOLOGY. IN THIS WAY, HHI HAS ESTABLISHED A WORLD-LEADING POSITION IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF OPTOELECTRONIC COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS FOR THE GENERATION AND DETECTION OF TERAHERTZ (THZ-) RADIATION. IN CLOSE COOPERATION WITH INDUSTRIAL PARTNERS AND INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH INSTITUTES, THE COMPONENTS AND SYSTEMS DEVELOPED AT HHI ARE USED IN INDUSTRIAL, NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTING. WE AT THE HHI ARE LOOKING FOR A:
Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. Our research efforts are geared entirely to people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work undertaken by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new vistas.
In this activity you will research and develop novel receivers and receiver arrays for Terahertz imaging within the Marie Skłodowska Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) TERAOPTICS (Terahertz Photonics for Communications, Space, Security, Radio-Astronomy, and Material Science). This ITN is a European research project involving four universities, two research institutes, three small and medium-sized enterprises and two industrial partners. Within this project, a doctoral thesis on “Photonic Terahertz Receiver Arrays for Sensor Technology and Imaging” is to be prepared. The goal is the development and implementation of indium phosphide based broadband photomixers for the coherent detection of terahertz radiation in the frequency range from 50 GHz to 3 THz. Different approaches will be analyzed and evaluated by simulations and subsequently realized within the integration platforms available at HHI. In addition, a three-month research stay with an industrial partner will give you a profound insight into the challenges and application fields of non-destructive testing and imaging with terahertz radiation. Within the Marie Skłodowska Curie Innovative Training Network, you will also participate in regular training courses, seminars and summer schools where you can establish contacts in the photonics industry as well as with international scientists from the participating partner organizations.
What we expect from you
What you can expect from us
In our group we develop optoelectronic components and systems for the generation and detection of terahertz radiation. From simulation and design, production and characterization to packaging, we cover all development steps in a modern, international working environment. You can advance application-oriented research in cooperation with leading national and international research institutions and industrial companies. You will have the opportunity to acquire a wide range of skills and experience that goes far beyond purely scientific work.
Furthermore you can expect
The terms of your contract are based on to European Commission's Marie Curie fellowship scheme.
The working time consists of 39 hours per week.
The position is initially limited for 3 years.
In case of identical qualifications preference will be given to severely disabled candidates. We would like to point out that the chosen job title also includes the third gender. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft emphasises gender-independent professional equality.
