The Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Jena offers one Ph.D. scholarship in the frame of the project ALSI (Advanced Laser-writing for Stellar Interferometry – http://stefanominardi.eu/444-2/).
Goals will be:
- manufacture 3D-integrated-optics components for infrared astronomical interferometry,
- participate in the definition of laser-writing models,
- investigate the origin of the laser-induced modifications of infrared glasses.
Besides enjoying the collaborations with the Max Plank Institute for Astronomy (Heidelberg) and the University of Cologne, the student will be actively involved into the work of a multi-national consortium grouping the most prominent actors of the Astrophotonic research in Europe.
