Optical Engineer/Physicist - 1084402

ABOUT
THIS POSITION

KBR is seeking an optical
engineer/physicist to design, assemble, and operate experimental
measurement and test apparatus to support research involving polarimetry for
various applications. The primary task
will be generating, manipulating, and measuring the polarization state of light
(full Stokes polarimetry) using both coherent and incoherent sources of
light. Most of the experiments will be
carried out in the infrared (wavelengths from 1 to 10μm), but some experiments may include visible or
ultraviolet light. Experience working in
many wavelength ranges is desired. This
position requires extensive hands-on experience with lasers of various types
(solid state, VCSEL, gas, etc.) and in various operating modes (continuous
wave, pulsed, mode-locked, etc.). The main
applications require measurements on the microsecond time scale or faster. Some measurements will be performed on
samples in cryogenic chambers requiring fiber coupling. Electrical measurements and stimulation of
samples will be made in conjunction with optical excitation, so a knowledge of
instrument interfacing, timing, and control of equipment is essential.

The selected candidate will design,
assemble, and operate optical and electrical components for the production
and measurement of the polarization state of light from the UV to the far
infrared and use polarization of light to
encode, transmit, and decode information in a basic communication system. The selected candidate will Identify or distinguish materials by
measuring their Mueller matrices with laser pulses in various polarization
states for the development of polarimetric LiDAR systems.

This position is located at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Sensor
Directorate, Wright Patterson AFB, OH.

Qualifications

QUALIFICATIONS:

Education: PhD
in physics, optics, or electrical engineering with extensive laboratory
experience or an MS with at least eight years of hands-on experience.

Experience/Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
Good recordkeeping skills are required.
Ability to produce laboratory reports on a regular basis.
Ability to work as a part of an interdisciplinary team but able to work
independently on small projects.

The selected applicant must meet eligibility requirements
for a DoD security clearance, as well as the Air Force Research
Laboratory requirements to access Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

WHO WE ARE:

KBR is a global government services
organization. We deliver mission critical, full life cycle services
that improve military readiness, drive innovation, and help ensure mission
success. Since WWII, we have led many of the federal government’s most
important programs in the areas of defense, space and technology. Today, our
employees are solving some of the world’s most challenging problems and
inspiring the future. KBR core capabilities include engineering,
engineering, operations, logistics, science, program and acquisition
management, IT, cyber and security services.
