MIT Lincoln Laboratory 16 reviews –
The Chemical, Microsystem, and Nanoscale Technologies Group combines chemistry, optics, photonics, microfluidics, and nanofabrication disciplines, enabling the development of new technologies in the areas of chemical-biological defense, diagnostic and forensic analysis, and sensors and signal processors. The work includes the design, development, and testing of chemical sensors for trace explosive and toxic chemical detection (both point and standoff); multifunctional microsystems combining sensing, actuation, and energy sources; and the design, fabrication, and demonstration of metamaterials, plasmonic and nanophotonic devices, and microfluidic components.|
Recent advances in materials processing are enabling a new generation of fibers endowed with electronic and optoelectronic functionality. The post-doctoral researcher will join a multidisciplinary effort aimed at creating multimaterial thermally drawn device fibers and fabric sensor systems. Work will include computational design, fabrication of fiber preforms, fiber device drawing, and integration of fibers into textile systems, including woven, knits, and composites. Publishing high impact scientific papers in this nascent but rapidly growing field will be encouraged.
Near term research goals will focus on fabrication and characterization of fibers with engineered photonic properties
