Website Q.ANT GmbH

The PIC design and simulations engineers bridges the gap between the desires of the quantum architects and the needs and constrains of the PIC fabrication. You will develop new PIC components and circuits based on models and simulations and implement them as designs and layouts.

To achieve this task successfully, you are closely linked with our fabrication experts, to understand their limits and requirements. You talk a lot to our quantum architects to understand, what the key specifications are, that your component has to meet. And you analyse the input from the characterisation team, which tells you, how well your last designs performed in reality.

A complete application consists of a cover letter (motivation, max. one page), a CV and your diplomas.

Your profile

  • Master’s degree or Ph.D. in experimental physics, photonics, or a related field
  • Hands-on experience with the design and/or simulation of components for PICs or full PICs
  • Knowledge of standards tools and concept of the PIC industry (PDKs, IPKISS/Nazca/Synopsis/…) are a big plus
  • Experience with Python is a big plus
  • Open for an agile, innovative and entrepreneurial environment
  • Good language skills English, German is a plus

Your tasks

  • Understand the physics of quantum PIC components with their requirements and trade-offs
  • Develop concepts for PIC components and evaluate these using models and simulations
  • Implement layouts for components and full optical circuits on a PIC
  • Simulate full optical PIC circuits and match the results with experiments
  • Collect the input you need from all stake holders
  • Manage regular tape outs of designs and the interaction with the fabrication team
  • Keep the feedback cycle going and improve continuously

Your benefits

  • In our team-oriented working atmosphere, you have flexible options for working hours and can thus combine your job and free time in the best possible way.
  • The interdisciplinary team supports you in your professional and personal further education.
  • Insight into the development of high-tech products.
