New Postdoctoral Position

ERC-Funded Postdoctoral Research Fellow: Opto-Chemical Sensing and Spectroscopy 
The position is attached to the ERC Starting Grant project “Cryptophane Enhanced Trace Gas Spectroscopy for On-Chip Methane Detection (sCENT).” The goal of this project is to develop a methane sensor based on a photonic chip, which will be 2-3 orders of magnitude more sensitive than existing chip-scale devices. Chemical pre-concentration of methane molecules on the chip is one key element in the project, and it will represent the main focus of the successful applicant. Central to the work is the preparation of mid-infrared transparent enrichment films that can be deposited in the form of thin films on top of specially designed nanophotonic waveguides. The chemically functionalized sensors are expected to achieve excellent selectivity and sensitivity and will be optimized for drone-conducted identification and quantification of methane sources in the Arctic. The appointment is for a period of three years, with preferred start in autumn 2018.  More information on the position can be found on:
