This Ph.D. research will carry out in the Optical I/O program to develop devices and circuits for polarization management. Polarization management is important for almost all silicon photonics systems because silicon waveguides have strong birefringence. The required functionalities include polarization synthesizing, analyzing, and stabilizing. During this research, the Ph.D. student is expected to master Python programming for scientific data processing, and the modeling, simulation, and characterization of silicon photonics devices and circuits.
In this research, the Ph.D. student will carry out:
Required background: Master’s degree in EE or Physics, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Preferred: experience with Python programming, and integrated photonics design/simulation/characterization
Type of work: 30% modeling/simulation, 50% experimental, 20% literature
