Our former staff member Massimiliano Guasoni was recently awarded with and ERC Starting Grant (congrats!). 
Here we post a message where he describes the job profiles he is searching for his project. 
I am looking for 1 PhD and 1 PostDoc working in my ERC Starting Grant project MODES (Multimode light shaping: from optical fibers to nanodevices), that will start the 1st December 2018.

The ideal candidate has experience in fabricating waveguides and nanoantennas (Si and SiGe);  good knowledge of nonlinear optics; basic knowledge of Comsol or similar software tools (for the design of waveguides/nanoantennas) ; basic knowledge of Matlab programming to simulate the propagation and interaction between multiple modes of the waveguides/nanoantennas.


The two main objectives of the project are:

1) Generation of light in the mid and long-infrared, exploiting nonlinear interactions between different modes of Si and SiGe waveguides. The generation of light in the mid and long-infrared is a hot-topic having application in many different fields (e.g. medical, military, sensors ).


2) Controlling the second / third harmonic radiation profile in arrays of multimode nanoantennas. This is another hot-topic with many applications.

Title: Tailoring of optical solitons in dispersion oscillating fiber
Abstract: The inelastic soliton interactions imposed by periodical oscillation of the fiber dispersion are discussed. To analyze soliton interactions the variable coefficient Schrödinger equation was solved numerically. Three particular cases are considered: i) fission of high-order solitons; ii) fission of co-propagating fundamental solitons; iii) merge of fundamental solitons into rogue wave. The possible applications of inelastic soliton interactions are discussed.
