We seek a postdoctoral researcher for a 2-year position at Colgate University to work on optical physics research with complex light. The position is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation. We are interested in an experimental researcher with experience in optics, with preference given to those familiar with complex-light beams and associated hardware, such as spatial light modulators and parametric down-conversion. Available facilities at Colgate include numerous types of lasers, spatial light modulators and other optical hardware, including 6 optical tables set up with ongoing classical and quantal studies.

The primary duties of this position involve designing and performing experiments on complex-light problems. Current ones include studies of non-diffractive “pendulum” beams to simulate quantum mechanical problems, studies of “Einstein beams” that follow gravitationally lensed trajectories, creating 3-d fields of spatially-variable polarization, and quantum imaging of spatial modes of single photons and their biomedical applications. This work will be done in collaboration with Prof. Enrique “Kiko” Galvez and Colgate University undergraduates. For those interested in eventually moving on to an academic position, the option exists to supervise undergraduate students in research and to be mentored in excellence in teaching within the curriculum at Colgate.
