SiComb is hiring
We are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral researcher, for a 2 years contract on SiC-based functional thin films deposition within SiComb project. Application deadline: 16 April 2021
Chip-based frequency combs requiring very little space and with very low power consumption are key technologies for their integration. The EU-funded FET-OPEN SiComb project aims to demonstrate for the first time a CMOS-compatible and ultra-broadband on-chip frequency comb made from sustainable and high-performance silicon carbide. The postdoctoral researcher will be working at CNRS within SIMaP lab in Grenoble to study, develop and optimize SiC-based thin films for photonic applications.
The post-doctoral fellow will have in charge of the development of high optical quality SiC thin films, i.e. with low optical losses. This requires perfect control of both the bulk properties (volume) and the interface properties (layer/substrate interface and layer surface). He/She will focus on two main aspects:
- the development of low temperature (400-800°C) deposition of SiC-based thin films;
- the optimization of the deposition conditions to tune and optimize the films chemical, structural and optical properties
In addition, the postdoctoral researcher will work in a very dynamic project team and will collaborate with several groups within the European consortium, including DTU-Fotonik (Denmark), FAU (Germany), Polito (Italy), among others.
