All positions are available immediately in the Nijhuis group at the National University of Singapore, NUS) to develop plasmonic-electronic transducers for applications in integrated high speed electronics for next generation technologies. The project is funded by the National Research Foundation for 5 years and is a collaborative effort with several industry partners, the Centre of Advanced 2D Materials (https://graphene.nus.edu.sg/), and NUS Nanoscience & Nanotechnology Initiative (www.nusnni.nus.edu.sg/), and the Institute of High Performance Computing at A*STAR (https://www.a-star.edu.sg/ihpc).
We developed highly efficient plasmonic-electronic transducer that interconvert electrical signals directly into plasmonic signals with so far 10% efficiency (Nature Photon. 2017, 11, 623–627). We aim to further optimize the efficiencies of these transducers by using resonant structures and develop devices that can directionally excite plasmons in waveguides. These devices will form the basis to then develop active plamonic-electronic devices, e.g., plasmonic amplifier or modulator.
Candidates should have a strong background in plasmonic waveguiding, modelling, and optical characterization. The project is focused on fabrication and therefore candidates with a strong background clean room based micro/nanofabrication will be given a preference. Posts will be offered for the initial period of one or two years with possible extension, subject to review. Competitive salary is negotiable depending on experience. Formal applications (which include CV, cover letter, and the contact details of three references) should be addressed to
