My client is a world leader in the photonics and equipment space and now seek an experienced R&D Engineer to study the interaction mechanism between photons and materials and their applications under high power UV light exposure


  • Provide guidance and leadership in surface analytical and data analysis and ensure extraction of clear results and conclusions from data sets.
  • Strategize and initiate actionable plans by analysing data and discussions with SMEs
  • Liaise closely with material research scientists, optics engineers and systems engineers to ensure the feasibilities of new material and processes
  • Understand interaction mechanism between photos and materials and applications to photo contamination, photochemistry under high power UV exposure
  • Implement controls via materials selection, cleaning processes and purge control.
  • Establish the reliability model of optics under UV radiation conditions.
  • Provide guidance to R&D engineers to meet reliability and performance specs of next generation sub-systems
  • Guide the design teams on proper contamination control packaging/materials selection
  • Conduct laser damage test and analysis as needed for bulk optics, nonlinear optics, coating improvements and supplier qualification


  • Masters or Ph.D. in Physics, Optics or equivalent with at least 5 - 10 years' experience
  • Strong fundamental knowledge in chemistry, material science and surface science
  • Knowledge of condensed matter physics will be a big plus
  • Solid understanding of interaction mechanism between photos and materials
  • Knowledge of GCMS and other surface analytical techniques (SEM, TOF-SIMS, ICP-MS, AFM) a plus
  • Experience in setting up optical bench for conducting opto-electronic measurements
  • Prior knowledge in optics damage testing and optical coatings will be a plus
  • Ability to make project decisions based on based on optical fluence models to set purge gas requirements and select optics, opto-mechanics.
