  • Location: Friedrichshafen

  • Start: April 2024

  • Duration: 6 Months 

Your location

At the Airbus site in Friedrichshafen you will be working on innovation where others spend their holidays. Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Constance while having lunch in our canteen. And after work, join one of our many corporate sports groups to go running, sailing or skiing.

Your tasks and responsibilities

  • Design, assembly, test, and optimisation of a f-2f interferometer setup, including femtosecond pulse compression, amplification, and beat detection.

  • Optimisation of the optical interfaces with respect to signal-to-noise as well as electrical and thermo-mechanical stability to reach the desired performance in combination with a dedicated digital control-loop system developed in parallel.

  • Design, assembly, test, and optimisation of interface electronics on PCB prototypes for analogue and digital electronics between experimental setup and FPGA DAC and ADC.

  • Investigation and characterization of optical beat note signals and the closed loop optical performance.

  • Collaborate with an interdisciplinary and transnational team to develop novel techniques and methodologies.

  • Perform data analysis, numerical simulations, and statistical modeling to interpret experimental results.

  • Documenting your work and results as a recipe for future work.

 Desired skills and qualifications

  • Enrolled in a Master's degree program (or equivalent) in the field of physics, optics, photonics or related fields.

  • Practical experience in handling and developing optical setups including for instance single mode fibers and couplers, optical gratings, laser diodes, nonlinear frequency doubling or mixing, optical beat-note detection or interferometric setups.

  • Practical programming skills with MATLAB or Python is an essential asset.

  • Geometrical optics and/or nonlinear optics background to perform analytical evaluations and optimisation is favorable.

  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills, with the ability to think critically and propose innovative solutions.

  • Proficiency in experimental techniques, data acquisition, and analysis tools.

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to present research findings and problems effectively.
