(en anglais) Large area planar light source for holography
A partir de octobre 2021
The lighting and signalling functions in cars ensure the safety of motorists and pedestrians. With the advent of new light sources such as LEDs and, in the longer term, lasers, new lighting and signalling systems will emerge. In particular, holographic displays are opening up innovative perspectives in this field of application. However, current holographic systems lack compactness due to the extension of the light source of the holographic plate. A large area planar source solution has been proposed recently, based on substrate guided optics technologies.
The aim of this postdoctoral fellowship is to experimentally demonstrate this planar source, which comprises a SiN-on-silica guide array (already fabricated), functionalized by silver plasmonic nanoantennas. The postdoc will follow the process of functionalization of the guides (by electron lithography, silver lift-off and encapsulation), then optically characterize the structures and compare the emission properties of the structure with numerical predictions.
Profile required: education in optics/photonics; knowledge of nanofabrication in clean room (for process monitoring) ; good knowledge of optical characterisation; basic knowledge of optical simulation
