The one-year mission, renewable once depending on the experience, which will be entrusted to the selected candidate will consist in developing and characterizing resonant elastic nanostructures of the "phononic crystals" type. This mission is part of the European project DYNAMO (Dynamique Spatio-Temporal Modulation of Light by Phononic) whose main objective is the development of a new type of ultrafast spatial light modulator.
- Experimentation in acoustics and elasticity of materials by optical means
- Instrumentation based on visible and near IR lasers
- Development and improvement of optical assemblies
- Work in clean room
- Modeling and numerical simulations
- Presentation of the results obtained at different scales (local, national, international) and participation in related scientific events.
- Participation in the DYNAMO consortium meetings
- Possible supervision of graduate students
- Knowledge and experience in optics and matter-light interactions.
- Knowledge of material elasticity and elastic wave propagation would be an asset.
- Set up of optical experiments.
- Acquisition and processing of experimental data, including the development of numerical codes.
- Autonomy; Scientific curiosity; Teamwork; Interpersonal skills.
The recruited person will be integrated in the team "Acoustics for Nanosciences" of the Institute of Nanosciences of Paris (https://w3.insp.upmc.fr) and will be placed under the joint scientific responsibility of Olga Boyko (Associate Professor Sorbonne University) and B. Bonello (Senior Researcher CNRS). The INSP is a fundamental physics laboratory of Sorbonne University and CNRS. It is located on the Jussieu campus (Paris 05) and gathers about 200 people including 80 researchers and teacher-researchers.
Constraints and risks
Most of the experimental work will be done with ultrafast lasers requiring the wearing of protective glasses
