PhD position in Wavelength Dependent Speckle Dynamics: Speckle based Wavemeter

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)

Ph.d. & forskning

Frist 1. oktober 2017

The Technical University of Denmark has an open PhD position with the title, “Wavelength Dependent Speckle Dynamics: Speckle based wavemeter”. The PhD project’s aim is to develop new features within a novel concept, called speckle based wavemetry. Aspects such as absolute wavelength measurements, multiple-line wavemetry and fast response wavemetry for wavelength regulation have high priority. In collaboration with NKT photonics we intend to develop a device for wavelength stabilization of acousto-optical filters used for their super-continuum light sources.

Project description
The goal of this PhD project is to study, propose and implement novel applications in the area of speckle based wavemetry of partially coherent light sources. The main topics the researcher will tackle within the project are:

  • Modelling detection of quasi-monochromatic and polychromatic speckle dynamics.
  • Fast response wavelength measurements of phase noise from a coherent light source.
  • Precise, absolute line frequency measurements of light emitted from coherent or partially coherent light sources.
  • Fast response wavemetry device for wavelength stabilization of partially coherent light sources, such as a fiber based super-luminescent light source, integrated with acousto-optical filters.

The candidate must have a master's degree in engineering or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to the master's degree in engineering. A solid background within classical optics, lasers and signal processing is of importance, some knowledge of statistical optics is an advantage. Good communication skills in written and spoken English is a must.

Approval and Enrolment
The scholarship for the PhD degree is subject to academic approval, only candidates with an above the average marks are accepted in the program. We recommend the applicants to contact the supervisors in advance to assess the suitability of the application.Candidates will be enrolled in one of the general degree programs of DTU. For information about the general requirements for enrolment and the general planning of the scholarship studies, please see the DTU PhD Guide.
