PhD Grant Offer
details on the PhD offer

We offer a predoctoral contract (PhD grant) within the project Smart management of Light and Sound waves by Metamaterials, Metasurfaces and non‐Hermitian systems (SMARTWAVES).


The principal objectives of the project are:

The PhD work will be developed in the frame of “Non‐Hermitian Systems” and “Lattices, metamaterials and metasurfaces” in the field of photonics. The main subjects will be the study of novel laser sources with PT‐symmetry, its stabilization, and optimization, the control of turbulence and the introduction of metastructures in semiconductor lasers for their regularization. Alternatively, the PhD can be directed to metastructures for optical applications like invisibility on demand, applied to optics and acoustics, axisymmetric complex structures and metasurfaces for smart light control.
