KBRwyle Research Scientist in DAYTON, Ohio

Research Scientist


KBRwyle is seekinga full-time, experienced individual to join an exciting research team in support of ongoing research and development projects in the area of high-power, high-brightness semiconductor lasers, nonlinear optics and quantum information processing.The individual will work closely with a diverse group of scientists and engineers from the Optoelectronic Technology Branch of the Air Force Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, OH.The research will be to develop spectral and temporally diverse semiconductor lasers for sensors applications, from the near- through long-wave infrared optical spectrum and encompasses design, fabrication, and characterization of enhanced nonlinear optical and gain materials,optoelectronic components and sensor processing products for communication, laser countermeasure, electronic warfare, quantum information processing and imaging applications.

The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. degree in Physics (or equivalent) with applied optical lab experience, preferably followed by more than 1.5 years of research and development lab experience.

Significant expertise in device characterization including mid-wave infrared spectrally-resolved near- and far-field characterization, temporal characteristics, temporally-resolved optical spectrum, and cavity-dumping of semiconductor lasers is desired. Modeling of the same as well as the ability to analyze and engineer photonic integrated circuitry, device temporal and spectral characteristics over a variety of biases is necessary. Familiarity with standard laboratory software such as Lumerical, Matlab, National Instruments Labview, and OriginLab Origin is essential.
