Ph.D. openings

    • PhD - Vanadium Dioxide-Based Films for Randomizing Photonic Emission and Absorption of Integrated Circuits

      Start: October 2023

      Application deadline: 30th April 2023

      Location: Laboratoire Hubert Curien, Université Jean Monnet (UJM), St-Etienne, France. (Both Laser-Matter Interaction + SESAM teams)

      Interested candidates should send a CV to both:

      • Florent Bourquard, Associate Professor   florent.bourquard @ 
      • Lilian Bossuet, Professor  lilian.bossuet @ 

      The goal is to develop a smart coating that will prevent exploiting the photonic emission and absorption from integrated circuits, effectively limiting the use of optical techniques to reverse-engineer microchips or access the stored secret data.
