Description of the thesis topic

The convergence of photonics and microelectronics constitutes one of the great challenges of current research. The possibility of using light as an information vehicle, for example in microprocessors, opens up fantastic prospects for increasing their performance while reducing their electrical consumption.
One of the main challenges is to design the new range of optoelectronic devices enabling this convergence to be achieved. It is a question here of developing components far beyond the state of the art in terms of compactness, speed and energy efficiency.
The work of the recruited doctoral student will concern the development of hybrid III-V semiconductors on silicon nanolaser diodes. It will also be about using these devices to create memories or optical synapses. The doctoral student will be involved in the design, clean room fabrication as well as in the optical characterization of the nanodevices.

Work Context

The Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (Palaiseau, France) is a key player in the field of nanosciences, from photonics to nanoelectronics, including microsystems and materials. The recruiting team is in the photonics department of the laboratory. The team has extensive experience in the study of semiconductor optical nanostructures. The candidate will be part of a dynamic team working in the field in the context of several European projects.
