The Department of Photonics Engineering (DTU Fotonik)
at the Technical University of Denmark is inviting applications from
qualified candidates for a Ph.D. project of three years duration.
This project will be focusing on developing new and innovative
schemes for state-of-the-art light-matter interaction, manipulation
and characterization by “light-only” with pioneering applications in
optofluidics, biophotonics and nano-photonics research.
Further developing applications for our fully
user-interactive BioPhotonics Workstation platform
Implementing all-optical lab-chip
functionalities in new bio-optofluidics embodiments
Researching on fully utilising spatial,
spectral and temporal properties of dynamically sculpted light
fields and spatio-temporal beam modulation.
The project will be carried out in an
experimentally oriented research environment at the forefront of a
highly active and competitive area of science including the
potential for being involved in current commercial spin-out
activities. The project will involve strong collaborative research
with leading academic and industrial groups in USA, Europe and

Candidates may apply prior to obtaining their MSc degree, but
cannot begin before having received it.
Project environment and research group
The Programmable Phase Optics (www.ppo.dk)
research is primarily engaged in applying the Generalized Phase
Contrast method, which facilitates lossless light transmission and
direct conversion of input phase patterns to high contrast intensity
distributions. This technique can be used in a number of
applications requiring parallel light-beam encoding such as the
generation of multiple beam optical traps, optical
encryption/decryption or phase-visualization applications like
wavefront sensing. The GPC core set-up can be miniaturized into a
planar-integrated micro-optics setup in order to realize
applications of the GPC method to current technologies in
electro-optical data transport. In addition to phase encoding, the
group is investigating parallel polarization encoding using spatial
