The Laboratory for Advanced Materials Processing located in Thun has been investigating the interactions between lasers and materials. Thus, fundamental studies are performed to understand and characterize the laser coupling with metal bulks and powders and the knowledge gained is directly applied to industrial applications, such as laser welding, laser structuring and additive manufacturing. The group Powders & Nanocomposites Processing is particularly investigating the fabrication of metal matrix nanocomposites performed by the direct energy deposition additive manufacturing route. The powder transport and behavior are observed by high-speed cameras while the temperature fields are characterized by both high-speed imaging in the infrared range and optical emission spectroscopy. In this context, we are offering a full-time
We are offering a multifaceted and challenging position in a modern research environment with excellent infrastructure. The position is available from September 2020 and will remain open until filled.
