Type of employment


"Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – particularly more females – at all levels. Launch your mission with us and send in your application now!" Prof. Pascale Ehrenfreund - Chair of the DLR Executive Board

A new infrared measurement technique is being developed within the European Project SFERA 3 ( for the online mapping of emissivity and temperature applied to solar tower external thermal receivers. On the one hand, the spectral emissivity of reference materials and coatings is measured in different laboratories at room temperature and operating temperature. On the other hand, optimal wavelength combinations must be identified to apply the thermographic measurement principle in a real power plant. The focus of this work lies on the analysis of the Round Robin test campaign and the selection of relevant spectral bands.

Task description:

  • analysis of Round Robin Measurement data
  • comparison and selection of relevant spectral bands

Your qualifications:

  • Natural Sciences, Engineering, preferably physical optics
  • good programming skills (Matlab)
