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.
