    Qualifications

    Potential candidates for the 3-year PhD-scholarship are expected to have a relevant MSc degree and experimental skills in at least one of the following areas: nanofabrication, advanced electromagnetic modelling and optical characterization of plasmon-based metasurfaces operating in visible and near-infrared wavelength ranges

    Responsibilities/Job Description

    The proposed project is concerned with experimental investigations and theoretical studies of possibilities for realization of dynamic electrically-controlled optical metasurfaces implemented with various plasmonic nanostructures, with the overall goal being to enable diverse fast and efficient electrically-controlled ultra-thin flat optics components. 

    The project goals include the development of analytical approaches, computational tools and experimental (fabrication and characterization) techniques for the realization of dynamic electrically-controlled optical metasurfaces implemented with plasmonic nanostructures as well as the contribution to further progress in understanding of physical mechanisms involved in light-matter interactions at nanoscale. The overarching goal is to realize fast compact and efficient electrically-controlled ultra-thin flat optics components, enabling dynamic and reconfigurable molding the electromagnetic radiation flow.
