Ultrafast characterization of Plasmonic nanodevices for Strong Coupling Regime

Liguria, Italy
15 Jul 2017

NOTE: this position listing has expired and may no longer be relevant!

Position Description


The candidate will be asked to theoretically study and experimentally realize plasmonic nanostructures for strong coupling regime applications. In particular, the candidate is expected to design, simulate, fabricate and finally statically characterize plasmonic nanodevices capable of showing Rabi splitting in the visible/IR spectrum. Furthermore, the ultrafast characterization, based on 100fsec system, will be accomplished together with a team partner located at the Key State Laboratory at the College of Electronic Science and Engineering, Jilin University, China. In case of a more than satisfactory proficiency from the candidate, its staying in China for the time necessary for the experiment might be considered.
The candidate will have at disposal also a number of numerical codes (FEM, FDTD, FIT, etc.) in order to analyze realistic structures which will be fabricated in IIT.


Master degree within a relevant discipline. A suitable background would be, physics, chemistry, engineer, material science or similar. Publications and any other work which the applicant wishes to be taken into account must be enclosed. Joint works will be considered provided that a short summary outlining the applicant’s contributions is attached. The application must include a statement of purpose related to the present call. This statement should be precise and brief, and states the candidate’s academic and research interests.
The applications must also include a motivation letter, CV, diplomas, and reference letters.

Deadline: August 22nd 2014
