Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Reflective Electro-Magnetic Band Dazzling Effects for Safe Ocular and Electro-Optical Operations Recent advances in laser technology enabled the development of cheap yet powerful lasers accessible to the public. The modern lasers are capable of propagating across significant distances with minimal attenuation and loss in power. The misused publicly accessible lasers pose challenges and hazards to the public safety since they can dazzle electro-optical systems and damage the human eyes. Therefore, it is of a great interest to investigate a broad series of laser effects on various electro-optical systems across a broad range of parameters. The goal of the research project is to elucidate safe operating regimes for electro-optical systems and eyes under various laser illuminations and atmospheric backgrounds. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow should have strong theoretical and technical background of current laboratory methods and techniques in the areas photon propagation, distributions, and statistics. The Fellow needs to have a solid understanding of laser and electro-optical systems. They should have strong communication skills and be current on industry and academic trends. The position requires experience in the following areas: • Laser and electro-optical systems. • Statistical analysis of photon distributions. • Light propagation across various media to include atmosphere, optics, and focal plane arrays. • Exciton and signal generation in electro-optical systems. • Signal measurement and extraction in the opto-electrical systems. U.S. Citizenship is required for this project. Keywords: Laser, Optical Dazzling, EO Systems, Electro-Magnetic Propagation Click here for more information

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!
