The successful candidate will work on research projects involving novel flat optical components and integrated electronic systems for the development of tunable optical phased array and beam steering devices at visible wavelength, targeting new LIDAR applications.
- Theoretical analysis, modeling and design of nanophotonic devices: experience with multi-physics simulation (such as Lumerical, Comsol or CST)
- Hands-on nanofabrication and processing of nanophotonic devices in clean room. Prior experiences with semiconductor material processing for photonic devices would be highly considered.
- Optical experiments and electrical characterization methods.
-Excellent communication and writing skills are expected to report on experimental and theoretical data internally and to international conferences.
The successful candidate must be able to work in a collaborative and dynamic research environment. The position is renewable for two years, funded by the European Research Council starting grant on the project called “Functional optical metasurfaces for visible wavelengths”.
The Research Center for Heteroepitaxy and its Applications (CRHEA) is a CNRS research laboratory specialized in the epitaxy of large bandgap semiconductor materials such as III nitride materials (GaN, AlN) , zinc oxide (ZnO), silicon carbide (SiC) and their micro- and nanofabrication in a clean room. CRHEA also studies 2D materials such as graphene, or boron nitride.
The main areas covered by the CRHEA concern the energy transition, the communications of the future, the environment and health. CRHEA also conducts fundamental studies in nanoscience and crystal growth.
High energy bandgap materials are key elements for power electronics, ultra-high frequency electronics, LED-based lighting and new generations of micro-displays. CRHEA visible and ultraviolet light sources have multiple applications for lighting, biophotonics and water purification. CRHEA also develops components in the THz domain, photonic circuits, advanced optical components based on metasurfaces, applications in spintronics, sensors and is involved in the development of quantum technologies.
The laboratory has eight molecular beam epitaxy growth reactors and five vapor phase growth reactors. It also has tools for structural characterization of materials and a clean room for micro and nanofabrication.
CRHEA employs around 60 staff members (including 20 researchers / teacher-researchers, about fifteen engineers and about fifteen doctoral / post-doctoral students)
The combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches makes it possible to exploit all the possibilities offered by nanostructures and this is the strength of the Nanotechnologies team, which uses GaN and ZnO as materials of choice. Our interests range from basic materials science, including MBE and MOCVD growth to new materials (eg ZnMnO, rare earth nitrides and oxynitrides), to the development of more complex nanophotonic systems. These include metasurfaces, which allow the manufacture of ultrathin-ultralight optoelectronic components such as metal lenses, optical microcavities. These are the ideal playground for testing effects in quantum electrodynamics and obtaining Bose-Einstein condensates in a semiconductor environment. Finally, a last nanophotonic platform based on GaN nanowires is able to stimulate biological cells with unprecedented spatial resolution. Moreover, the manipulation of the spin of carriers and / or excitons within these photonic structures, thanks to our magnetic materials, opens the possibility of coupling spin and photons in an electrically addressable interface.
- Post financed by the "European Research Fund, ERC". The candidate will integrate and work within the NANO team, composed of 5 researchers, 3 engineers, 8 PhD students.
