This part-time Staff Scientist position is centered around computational and experimental efforts to investigate the photonic response of nano-sized, 3D periodic structures.
- Dispersion relation and band gap computations of sub-100nm periodic architectures of high-index materials (for example, titanium nitride), optimization of geometrical parameters for desired band gap wavelengths, experimental procedures and measurements of samples.
- Writing reports.
- Mentoring of graduate students in the Greer group.
- Ideally, the Staff Scientist will work closely with 1-2 graduate students in the Greer group and will train them on the required computational and experimental techniques.
- Other duties as assigned.
