We are hereby announcing a post-doctoral fellowship within the topic of nonlinear hybrid integrated photonics for sensing and laser applications. Non-linear photonic components have known an ever growing success for more than 20 years in fields as varied as lasers, biomedicine and high-speed telecommunications. In this context, reducing the footprint down to a micrometric scale is a crucial issue. This challenge can be addressed by exploiting materials with high non-linear properties, or by employing specific photonic architectures that enhance non-linear effects.
The post-doctoral project will aim at exploring both ways in the view of developing photonic sensors and highly coherent lasers.
