What we offer:

Your tasks and responsibilities

  • This image sensor R&D team located at Boise, Idaho, is looking to hire a graduate student intern to help develop an optical simulation toolbox, preferably in python or matlab, which allows for fast, multi-scale EM modeling (nano, micro and macro-scale).
  • The toolbox will combine multiple simulation approaches/solvers (Mainly: FDTD, RCWA, Transfer Matrix and Beam propagation) into a single simulation toolbox & workflow.
  • The toolbox must allow for running FDTD simulations on both CPU and GPU.
  • The toolbox will have tools to allow for export of BSDF for use in ray-tracing software such as Zemax.
  • The toolbox will be integrated with open-source optimization and deep learning toolboxes such as TensorFlow, etc to allow for inverse design of micro and nanostructures.
  • The toolbox will be used to define simulation workflows, and, to design pixel based sensors, diffraction gratings and metasurfaces.

Your education and experiences

  • The team is looking to hire a graduate student intern currently pursuing a PhD (or Masters in case of exceptionally qualified candidates) degree in an electromagnetic or optical sciences/engineering program.
  • Strong background in computational electromagnetics (CEM), Optics and Photonics,
  • Strong knowledge and experience in GPU programming (CUDA).
  • Strong programming background and ability.
  • Knowledge and background in metasurface design and optimization.
  • Deep-learning based design for optics and photonics.
  • Knowledge and background in numerical optimization.
