PhD position in BioPhotonics and BioOptofluidics using New Light Sculpting

Apply online by May 2 2012 through the DTU website:
http://www.dtu.dk/Om_DTU/ledige_stillinger.aspx?guid=cc8b7951-14b5-48d0-a29d-c9067bfa286f
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.

Project summary
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.

In particular:
  • 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 Japan. Click here for more information.

Candidate requirements
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 light modulators.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarships for the PhD degree are subject to academic approval, and the candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programmes of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide.

Salary and appointment terms
The salary and appointment terms are consistent with the current rules for PhD degree students. The period of employment is 3 years.
