Novel Optoelectronic Photonic Devices
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 8/23/2019

Opportunity Description

Novel Optoelectronic Photonic Devices We develop innovative optoelectronic devices (e.g., modulators, splitters, switches, amplifiers, and lasers) and radio frequency-photonic devices (e.g., infrared receivers, optical/microwave converters, photodetectors, and photo-receivers). These devices have applications into photonically controlled microwave systems, fiber-optic gyroscopes, collision avoidance systems, and biosensors. This research and engineering development involves basic device and material physics studies, as well as prototype device design, modeling, fabrication, and characterization. The development program offers great potential for device and material characterization techniques, their maturation, and advancement. Current research includes aspects of design and characterization of novel strained semiconductor quantum well heterostructures to obtain polarization control, epitaxial growth techniques such as selective epitaxy and regrowth for the purpose of bandgap engineering, monolithic integration of high-speed photodetectors with active field-effect transistors, and monolithic integration of passive and active waveguide components. SEDD has extensive facilities for material growth, fabrication, and optical and electrical characterization. You must be a U.S. Citizen to be considered for this project.

About Us

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies such as the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
