PhD student in mid-IR frequency comb spectroscopy

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

PhD student in mid-IR frequency comb spectroscopy


The PhD project involves the development of a high-precision, mid-IR dual-comb spectrometer based on quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) for the detection of trace gases and their isotopes. QCL frequency combs are monolithic, chip-based semiconductor sources with great potential for mid-IR multiheterodyne spectroscopy. The work involves intensive collaboration with ETHZ (Prof. J. Faist), University of Neuchâtel (Prof. T. Südmeyer) and the company IRsweep. The successful candidate will be enrolled at ETHZ, co-supervised by Prof. J. Faist.

Job description, responsibilities and tasks

  • Development of a multiheterodyne spectrometer for the detection of trace gases and their isotopes

  • Measurement of trace gases and their isotopologues

  • Data analysis and interpretation

Required skills

  • Master degree in physics or a related discipline

  • Good knowledge in optics, laser spectroscopy, and lock-in techniques

  • Prior experimental experience with semiconductor lasers and/or spectroscopy

  • Programming skills

  • Fluency in English is required; basic oral expression skills in German are desirable

The position is available from April 2018 and will remain open until filled. Applications received before 25 February 2018 receive full consideration.

For further information about the position please contact Dr Lukas Emmenegger, lukas.emmenegger@empa.ch and visit our websites www.empa.ch/web/s503 and Empa-Video
