The aim of the Post-Doc project is to explore quantum infrared detectors operating in the ultra-strong light-matter coupling regime. We will study devices where semiconductor quantum wells are integrated into electromagnetic resonators, “meta-atom”, featuring deep sub-wavelength electromagnetic confinement [1,2] . This geometry allows for ultra-low dark current and improved photo-generation rate [3]. In such devices, we will explore how the presence of polariton states affects the electronic transport of the device. A second objective is to export the metamaterial concepts developed so far for THz frequencies (lambda = 100µm) [1-3] to detectors operating in the IR medium (lambda = 10µm).

Work Context

This project is supported by the ERC project “UNIQUE” (https://erc.europa.eu/projects-figures/erc-fundedprojects/results?search_api_views_fulltext=todorov). The aim of this project is to explore the quantum effects of the ultra-strong light-matter coupling regime. The project will take place in the QUAD team of the Physics Laboratory of the Ecole Normale Supérieure, located in the Latin Quarter of Paris. In addition, the post-doc will benefit from full access to the clean rooms of the Paris Center consortium.

Constraints and risks

Standard risks associated with clean room fabrication. Risk training will be provided.
