imec and imec-IDLab are currently defining a roadmap towards novel generations of coherent optical transceivers, focusing in particular on applications that require Terabit/s/wavelength capacities for inter- and even intra-data center applications. These applications have demanding targets in terms of power consumption, cost and integration density. Therefore, novel coherent transceiver concepts will need to be defined, leveraging imec’s extensive capabilities in both photonics (including but not limited to its Silicon Photonic platform) and ultra high-speed electronics (targeting well beyond 100Gbaud rates). imec-IDLab is therefore seeking a postdoctoral researcher who will join an existing team consisting of electronic and photonic integrated circuit designers, photonic device and process specialists and experimentalists, with the following responsibilities:
The successful candidate will join an internationally renowned team of high-speed electronic integrated circuit designers, optical integrated circuit designers and optical device specialists . He or she will get the opportunity to realize and shape the Design group’s roadmaps towards next-generation optical transceivers with >100Gbaud symbol rates. The successful candidate will be provided every opportunity to publish the outcomes of their research work at high-impact international conferences and leading journals, in the area of optical fiber conferences.
This position is available for a definite duration of two years initially, and can be extended pending funding applications.
