The Nanophotonic Systems Laboratory (Pr. Romain Quidant) at ETH Zurich is searching for a Ph.D student to work on heat control on the microscale and its application to the development of novel reconfigurable planar optical elements for imaging.
In the Nanophotonic Systems Laboratory, we exploit our advanced control of light-matter interaction at the nanometer scale as a key enabling tool to address scientific and technological challenges over a broad range of fields. Our research is interdisciplinary and brings together a unique combination of expertise and skills with talented international members with diverse academic backgrounds.
Losses in metals have long been considered as a major issue in science and technology, and over the years, disciplines like photonics and electronics have put extensive efforts to reduce their impact on device performances. Here, we embrace a new paradigm, where heat generation in metals becomes an enabling tool, relevant to a wide range of applications rather than a limitation. In this context, we have developed an extensive toolbox to engineer heat generation at the nano- and micro-scale, either optically (Thermoplasmonics) or electrically. We utilize tunable optical properties of a thermo-optical material to engineer free form and tunable optical elements. This project envisages the extension of this smart approach towards real life applications like bio-imaging through controlled design of the thermal field.
We are searching for a talented, creative, and motivated PhD student to work on the electrical control of the thermal landscape and its applications to imaging. Main tasks include:
