IOMS, MESA+ Research Institute, University of Twente, P.O. Box 217, 7500 AE Enschede, The Netherlands Waveguide Amplifiers for Optical Interconnects
 

Summary: IOMS, MESA+ Research Institute, University of Twente, P.O. Box 217, 7500 AE Enschede, The Netherlands
Waveguide Amplifiers for Optical Interconnects
Ph.D. Vacancy (4 years):
Job Description:
Conventional electronic components rely on copper lines that are integrated on a printed circuit
board. Such electrical interconnects are approaching their fundamental limitations in terms of data
rate and power dissipation. It is expected that the current electronic boards will soon be replaced by
so-called "optical backplanes". High optical losses in optical interconnects due to materials, signal
routing, and input/output coupling give rise to limited performance.
This project targets development of flip-chip mountable optical waveguide amplifiers based on
rare-earth-ion doped amorphous Al2O3
Requirements:
, compatible with standard silicon technology. The PhD student
will investigate and develop on-chip optical waveguide amplifiers at each of the three
communication windows (850, 1330 and 1550 nm). Nano/micro-technology in our state-of-the-art
clean-room facilities and the optical characterization and spectroscopic investigation labs of the
group will be used for the realization and characterization of amplifier devices. The project will be
based on the competences of our group (on-chip integrated gain structures) and two world-leading
industrial partners. The project will be funded by the Dutch Technology Foundation (STW).
A Master or Diploma in Physics, Optics, or Electrical Engineering is required before the starting
