PhD Positions in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Eindhoven University of Technology, Netherlands

New forms of power-efficient, photonic integrated circuits are required to address challenges in data networking, computing and sensing. Photonic integration offers massive bandwidths, but the achievable circuit complexity is in its infancy. This research program addresses the key circuit level challenges in realising ultrafast signal processing for multi-Tb/s and THz class solutions.This research is embedded in a soon-to-be-started Dutch project Smartlight on next generation integrated photonic circuits solutions for interconnection and signal processing networks. The role of the PhD student will encompass aspects of design, clean room fabrication and assessment.

The candidate should have a master degree in the physical sciences or engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master’s degree in engineering. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in:
• Semiconductor physics
• Electronics
• Photonics
It is an advantage if the candidate has experience with:
• Clean room processing
• Optoelectronic circuit design
• Computer programming languages and computer aided design
• Measurement techniques
