Opportunity at National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Quantum Nanophotonic Sensor for Precision Metrology
Physical Measurement Laboratory, Sensor Science Division
Please note: This Agency only participates in the February and August reviews.
Our research efforts focus on the development of an innovative, multifunctional nanophotonic sensor. The envisioned platform will enable ground-breaking measurements of temperature, pressure, radiation dose and chemical species in a wide variety of environments and applications such as tissue engineering, additive manufacturing, and synchronization of coupled oscillators. Potential postdoctoral candidates with experience in quantum physics (atom-trapping or opto-mechanics), nano-photonics, NV diamond, spectroscopy, clean room fabrication and tissue engineering are encouraged to apply.
