The optical communication group of 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.
The system development covers several disciplines such as optics, mechanics, electronics and programming. Adaptive Optics (AO) is a technique used to dynamically correct the adverse effects of turbulence in the atmosphere on the optical communications channel. This position will be focused on characterizing the optical system at the Optical Ground Station (OGS) installed on the rooftop of the Institute of Communications and Navigation, at Oberpfaffenhofen.
The successful applicant will support the team in fully characterizing the AO system, with a special emphasis on the Deformable Mirror (DM) dynamics. They will also work in a cooperative environment with other students and colleagues to determine the mechanical delay with different specifications, both theoretical and experimentally. It is an excellent opportunity to work in a cutting edge topic, gain experience on real optical hardware, and improve your engineering skills.
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development.
