PhD position in instrumentation for observational Cosmology in Paris

The precise characterization of the polarized fluctuations of the 3K Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) appears today to be a major scientific challenge to further progress in the understanding of the primordial Universe. The so-called cosmological B modes in the CMB polarization are thought to have been generated by inflation in the very early Universe and would provide unique information about the origin of the Universe and fundamental laws of physics at very high energies. The weakness of the expected signals, a few nK for the B-Mode, requires a detection chain which must be highly sensitive together with an extreme immunity to instrumental systematic effects that are generally higher by a few orders of magnitude. Appliaction deadline: August 1st 2024.

Staff Scientist in the Field of Adaptive Optics at FH Münster University of Applied Sciences

The Photonics Laboratory at Muenster University of Applied Sciences conducts research in the fields of adaptive optics and solid state lasers. In the past, we developed a technology for producing deformable mirrors that led to a commercial off-the-shelf product of a major vendor in the photonics industry. We continuously refine and extend our deformable mirror technol-ogy for new applications, for example astronomical space telescopes, laser materials processing, and, most recently, coupling of squeezed vacuum light into third-generation gravitational wave interferometers such as the Einstein Telescope. Your task will be to take our deformable mirror technology to the next level by employing single-crystal piezoelectric actuators and by testing new mirror substrate materials. In order to do so, you will train new Ph. D. students and work with them on adaptive optics projects. There is also room for developing your own research interests.
