PhD Project: Development of novel semiconductor gain structures for visible and mid-IR OCT light sources
The doctoral research works will be focused on innovative solutions for developing novel semiconductor lasers for fast, narrow linewidth, stable phase and wide tuning bandwidth swept sources used in optical coherence tomography (OCT). More concretely, the responsibilities include development of waveguide semiconductor gain diodes for laser sources at NIR and mid-IR wavelengths. The experimental work of the project will be primarily taken place in clean-room fabrication area, and it will also include testing and application developments in OCT systems in collaboration with NETLAS partners.
