Empa - the place where innovation starts

Empa is the research institute for materials science and technology of the ETH Domain and conducts cutting-edge research for the benefit of industry and the well-being of society.
The Laboratory for Air Pollution / Environmental Technology has an opening for a
3-year postdoc / scientist position in the field of mid-IR frequency comb spectroscopy
Within this interdisciplinary project, we will develop high-precision, mid-IR dual-comb spectroscopy based on quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) to investigate control strategies for emerging ultrafast laser manufacturing processes. We thus take advantage of the unique speed and spectral coverage of QCL frequency combs, and of very recent developments in laser driving, data acquisition and analysis. The work involves intensive collaboration with experts in laser manufacturing, operando analysis and QCL design at EPFL, PSI and ETHZ.
