Please note: This Agency only participates in the February and August reviews.
Our research efforts focus on the development of an innovative, integrated multifunctional photonic sensor and standards platform based on silicon photonics. The envisioned platform will enable ground-breaking measurements of temperature, pressure, and chemical species in a wide variety of environments and applications such as traumatic brain injury, environmental and structural monitoring, nano-fluidics, quantum computing, and embedded photonic sensor networks for bio-monitoring. Potential postdoctoral candidates with experience in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, quantum physics (atom-trapping or opto-mechanics), nano-photonics, lasers, and/or clean room are encouraged to apply.
