Optical Memristors are disruptive photonic elements which have attracted significant attention during the last few years, while offering unique switching and memory-like characteristics, for driving the future optical networks and sensing systems. The FORTH-SYNERGY project Optical Memristors, based on Photo-fluidity, Chalcogenide Whispering Gallery Mode Cavities (OMEGA) proposes the elaboration of an optical memristive component, fusing together the exotic photo-sensitivity properties of chalcogenide glasses (ChGs) and the extreme power accumulation and modal state density of whispering gallery modes (WGMs) resonation inside spheroid microcavities.
A highly competitive, post-doctoral research fellow is sought for the project OMEGA, for 12 months initial contract, with an additional up to 12 months, extension foreseen upon performance. The successful candidate must have a PhD degree in Physics or Electrical/Electronic Engineering, with a strong experimental/theoretical background in Optical Fiber Devices and/or Whispering Gallery Mode systems, being proven by publications record, previous experience and/or thesis subject and reference letters. The applicants must provide at least two names (preferably three) of academics who can provide reference letters. Previous background on Glass science/photosensitivity will be considered as a strong asset. Applications without satisfying the above criteria will not being considered.
