You will be working to create innovative components that form the ultralow-loss platform. First the passive components are developed and experimentally tested and then they will be combined with active components such as low-noise optical amplifiers and efficient detectors. Both passive and active components require dedicated epitaxial growth, which is foreseen to be mostly the task of the postdoc. That position will involve hands-on process development using recently installed, state of the art 4″ (100 mm) indium phosphide manufacturing line, including high reproducibility epitaxy, deep ultra-violet scanner lithography and industry-grade etch and deposition equipment. These facilities and the associated expertise are considered to be unique in an academic research environment. The projects are supported with the infrastructure at the TU/e nanolab.
