The Optical Technologies for Satellite Application group at DLR’s Institute of Communications and Navigation develops experimental laser communication systems for optical data links between airborne carriers such as airplanes or satellites and optical ground stations as well as demonstrator platforms for testbed system verifications. The photonic integrated circuits development covers several disciplines such as photonics, communication, and programming.
The successful applicant will join our team in the development of integrated optical systems for very-high-throughput satellite communication and ranging applications. To address the challenge of testing integrated transceivers for space applications, she/he/they will develop software for automated measurements. The main focus of the work is on writing Python programs to communicate with experimental equipment, and on setting up measurement routines to test the photonic circuits in an automated and rapid approach.
It is an excellent opportunity to work in a cutting-edge topic, gain experience on programming for experimental measurement, and improve your engineering skills.
