Job DescriptionLast Date 19 Jan 19

Applications are invited for a Junior Research Fellow position in Photonics under a DST-SERB funded project

  • Project title: External stimulus tunable random lasing based on magnetic soft matter

Background of the project: 

  • The idea of investigating and harnessing the rich physics arising from scattering due to unavoidable structural disorder present in any photonic material and the quest for lasers with reduced components leading to size miniaturization, low fabrication cost and tunability by external stimuli have resulted in the surge of interest in random laser (scattering medium with optical amplification or gain) research during the last two decades. Unlike a conventional laser, a random laser does not have any optical cavity, instead, the optical feedback comes from light scattering in a disordered media, and the interference of the scattered light gives rise to resonant modes at particular frequencies. Random lasers have many unique and useful characteristics, including very low spatial and/or temporal coherence; many modes can lase simultaneously with uncorrelated phases over a very broad frequency range. 
  • Besides making tremendous progress in understanding random lasing, in different disordered media, in combination with other physical phenomena - optical amplification, scattering, nonlinearity, and/or localization, external stimulus tunability of random lasing characteristics – lasing threshold, modes (frequency) - is yet to be achieved.  
  • Goal of the project: Our goal is to achieve tunable random lasing on using magnetic field tunable soft matter systems as random media with gain, where both the degree of order/disorder and the scattering strength can be easily controlled by applied field strength.
  • Essential qualification: M.Sc. (Physics/Photonics/Applied Physics/Material Science) or M.Tech. (Photonics/ Applied Optics/ Laser Technology/ Fiber Optics and Lightwave Engineering/ Opto-Electronics and Optical Communication/ Optics & Optoelectronics) securing minimum first class or equivalent CGPA.
  • Desirable: Strong motivation to explore rich physics in the research areas - photonics/optics and soft matter physics.  

Development Opportunities:

  •  Selected candidate will have the opportunity to pursue research in interdisciplinary field including tunable light-matter interaction, sample synthesis, lasers (pulsed and continuous wave),fiber optics spectrometer , spatial light modulator, Z scan measurement of nonlinear properties, interferometer development, instrument (optical and magnetic field setup) interfacing with LabVIEW, data analysis.
  •  Candidates will also have the opportunity to pursue research within the framework of national (TIFR, Mumbai, IGCAR, Kalpakkam etc.) and international (Max Planck Institute-DS, Goettingen, Germany,  NCSU, Raleigh, USA etc.) collaboration, present research at national and international conferences.
  • Registration for Ph.D.: Selected candidate shall register for full time Ph.D. program at SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur, Chennai-603203. 
  • Application procedure: Eligible candidates are requested to send their CV via e-mail to the Principal Investigator Dr. Junaid Masud Laskar (/research-opportunities-details/9770),Assistant Professor (research),Research Institute, Department of Physics and Nanotechnology, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur, Chennai 603203, Tamil Nadu.
