We are constantly looking for motivated Master and PhD students as well as PostDocs with interests in the theoretical and numerical analysis of light matter interaction in micro- and nanooptical systems. If you would like to join our group while working in the context of any of our research activities, please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

Master thesis on Designing photonic nanostructures with machine learning algorithms  

Machine learning algorithms promise to design photonic structures with properties on demand from a large amount of previously computed data. In machine learning approaches, the algorithm is first in a training phase that requires many simulations of the actual forward problem. Afterwards, the structures are optimised in a recall phase that does not require any forward simulations. 

It is the purpose of this master thesis apply machine learning algorithms to some selected design problems in our group in the context of self-assembled metamaterials. In the initial phase of the thesis an in-house code for the simulation of photonic clusters consisting of a larger number of spheres shall be used. In the cause of time, also other methods shall be used to tackle different scientific challenges.

Master thesis on High efficiency single photon detectors

In close collaboration with the group from Prof. W. Pernice (KIT-INT and University of Münster), we are looking for a master student that shall work both theoretically/numerically and experimentally on the implementation of high performance single photon detectors using modern nano-optical concepts. You should be interested in understanding and manipulating the light propagation in nanostructured optical systems using photonic crystal concepts, to fabricate and characterise such devices in a proper clean room environment, and to verify the functionality of the single photon detectors.
