Postdoc: Femtosecond Generation and Detection of Ultrahigh-frequency Sound Waves for the Detection of Buried Nanostructures

Postdoc: Femtosecond Generation and Detection of Ultrahigh-frequency Sound Waves for the Detection of Buried Nanostructures

ARCNL - Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography

Amsterdam, Netherlands

In this project you will use state-of-the-art high-power femtosecond laser pulses to generate and detect extremely-high-frequency (up to 1THz) sound wave packets. The sound-wave packets have wavelengths even smaller than those of visible light. You will perform fundamental research on the generation and detection of these sound waves, and study their application potential for the detection of nano-structures, such as gratings, buried below opaque layers. The work combines ultrafast laser physics and materials science and has the added bonus of possibly seeing the results used in real applications.

About the group

You will be embedded in the Light-Matter Interaction group at ARCNL, which frequently interacts with our industrial partner ASML. The research activities of the Light-Matter Interaction group mainly take place in the general area of “metrology” and cover both fundamental research and real-life applications of that research.

Qualifications

You have a PhD in (applied) physics and experience in the fields of optical physics or laser physics and solid-state physics. Experience with photo-acoustics is not required but advantageous. Good verbal and written communication skills (in English) are required.

You need to meet the requirements for a doctors-degree and must have research experience in a non-Dutch academic environment.
