Summer Research Opportunities in Beam Shaping and Structured Light with the Singular Optics Group

I joined the next edition of Resonators founded by the Candela Foundation as a research stay host. The project aims to fund selected students to join one of the Polish research groups and pursue a short summer research stay to get hands-on experience in the lab.

If you’re interested in beam shaping and structured light, don’t hesitate to apply before the 27th of February!

The Singular Optics Group focuses on various beam-shaping techniques. We develop novel methods of beam shaping, techniques, algorithms, and whatever is needed to create the “beam tailored on purpose”. In particular, our research is devoted to those beams that carry the phase singularity – points in the optical field, where the phase is undetermined (eg optical vortices). We shape, evaluate, and search for potential applications of those fields.

Our recent projects aim to develop a new wavefront sensing technique and free space communication protocol. The student will be involved in research devoted to that matter, having the opportunity to learn novel beam shaping and evaluation techniques and pursue their research tasks regarding orbital angular momentum detection or vector field polarimetry.
