PhD: Optical Nanoscopy at Cryogenic Temperatures
The researcher will work in a team of experimentalists and theorists who share the common goal of imaging at the nanometre scale. She/he will work at the interface of the team designing, performing experiments, and developing modelling for data analysis. In order to achieve very high spatial resolutions from single molecule emitters, the wavefront of the light must not be disturbed by optical aberrations. In reality, such aberrations are always present, but only at our targeted high resolution at cryogenic temperatures do they play a crucial role. Therefore, the candidate will develop adaptive optics instrumentation and algorithms to measure the wavefront distortion and subsequently correct the distortions. We will use spatial light modulators to shape the wavefront.
The research will be performed at the Department of Imaging Physics in the Faculty of Applied Sciences at Delft University of Technology.
