Join the 3D and silicon photonics team at imec’s R&D headquarters located in the heart of Europe and help in revolutionizing next-generation silicon integrated photonics!

What you will do

  • Your mission as a Senior Laser engineer in the 3D and Si photonics team will be to drive the wafer-scale integration of InP and GaAs laser devices into imec’s Si photonics platforms. More specifically, you will be responsible for the laser device design, simulation, layout, data analysis and qualification.
  • You are responsible for a streamlined project execution by working closely with imec’s process integration, assembly, test, and reliability engineers, as well as with external suppliers and tool vendors.
  • You will be the strategic point of contact for the development of imec’s Si Photonics Laser Integration activities, liaising with our key internal and external customers. In addition, you will contribute to defining imec’s laser integration roadmap, in collaboration with the program management team.
  • You are responsible for coordinating laser reliability assessment and improvement activities. Together with imec’s reliability experts, you will identify failure modes and propose solutions to prolong the lifetime of devices.
  • You will be reporting the results to internal stakeholders, including peers across team/group/unit and to the external stakeholders including imec customers and core partners, as well as the scientific community.
  • You need to stay on top of the state of the art within your competence domain and benchmark imec’s solutions.
