Support the Air Force Laboratory (AFRL) Sensor s Directorate
Integrated Photonic Circuits (IPC) Team to help advance R&D
efforts in the field of integrated photonics and microwave
photonics. Primary responsibilities are to lead the electronic
development for the control, interfacing, and enhancement of
photonic sub-systems. The successful candidate will collaborate
with a multi-disciplinary team on the design, integration,
assembly, and characterization of hybrid electronic/photonic
prototypes. Electronic development involves mixed-signal circuit
design, programing of microcontrollers and/or FPGA implementation.
Applications focus on microwave photonics, atomic systems, and
The successful candidate is expected to lead electronic development
to functionalize photonic sub-systems. Electronic support includes
biasing of photonic devices, feed-back control, phase-locking,
opto-electronic read-out, processing, and user-interfacing.
Developed prototypes may be self-standing or embedded in larger
system architectures. Opportunities also exist to contribute to
exploratory research projects including the design of integrated
electronic/photonic circuits and the advancement of microwave
photonic processing using high-speed ADCs, FPGAs, and ASICs.
Additional responsibilities include characterization,
documentation, briefing reports, and project planning.
