The Raman Research Institute was founded in 1948 by the Indian physicist and Nobel Laureate, Sir C V Raman, to continue his studies and basic research after he retired from the Indian Institute of Science. Sir C V Raman served as its director carrying on his personal research until his demise in 1970. It was funded personally by him and with donations from private sources. The Raman Research Institute is now an autonomous research institute engaged in research in basic sciences. In 1972, the RRI was restructured to become an aided autonomous research institute receiving funds from the Department of Science and Technology of the Government of India.
The Raman Research Institute, funded by the Government of India, is a premier institute engaged in research in basic sciences. More information about the Institute, the fields of research, and other details can be viewed at its website www.rri.res.in.
Applications are invited for ONE POST of RESEARCH ASSISTANT (RA) on a temporary basis for the ULTRAFAST AND NONLINEAR OPTICS (UNO) lab in the Light and Matter Physics (LAMP) Group of the Institute for a period of one year / extendable to second year depending upon the candidate’s performance. The candidate will be associated with the UNO lab of the Institute. We seek motivated individuals with an excellent academic background with an aptitude to master the functioning and use of scientific equipment and eagerness to learn new experimental techniques. Details of the required qualifications and experience are given below
- Research Assistant
• Post-graduate science degree in Physics/Photonics with a minimum of 70 % marks or 7.0 CGPA.
• Six months’ experience in doing experimental projects using lasers as light sources.
Desirable: It will be desirable if the candidate (i) has good computing and programming skills, and (ii) is familiar with spectroscopy experiments using pulsed or ultrafast lasers.
Design and execution of experiments in one or more of the following areas: (i) nonlinear optics, (ii) ultrafast spectroscopy, (iii) laser-produced plasmas.Experiments will be followed by analysis of the results and preparation of manuscripts for publication. The RA will work in consultation with and under the direction of the UNO lab in-charge.
Brief Summary of the Projects
Nonlinear optics: Nonlinear Optical measurements will be carried out in novel materials.
Applications include optical frequency conversion, generation of short and ultrashort laser pulses, and protection of sensitive light detectors from laser-induced damage.
Ultrafast spectroscopy: Pump-probe measurements in novel materials employing ultrafast (100 fs) laser pulses for investigating the excitation dynamics of molecules.
Laser-produced plasmas: Plasmas will be generated from suitable targets by irradiating them with powerful laser beams. The plasma thus formed will be investigated in detail using optical and electrical techniques. These studies lead to a number of applications including trace element analysis.
Minimum Monthly Remuneration
A consolidated remuneration of Rs. 23,500/- per month at commencement + HRA as applicable (presently HRA is 27%) will be paid to the selected candidate. An increment of Rs.1000/- will be provided in the second year.
