Proposed topics of the internship:
In the Singular Optics Group, we center our research around laser beam shaping. We develop techniques, algorithms, and supply our laboratory with tools that allow us to pursue the concept of purposefully tailored beams. In particular, we are interested in structured light containing phase singularities—points in the optical field where the phase is undetermined (e.g. optical vortices). We both design, explore and apply these fields in various scenarios, ranging from metrology and wavefront sensing to free space communication protocols.
The proposed project will be devoted to the same concept. The student will have an opportunity to learn modern beam-shaping techniques, mainly using digital holography. They will then realize their own project dedicated to the characterization of structured light, including orbital angular momentum modal analysis or vector fields polarimetry.
