The implementation of topological effects in photonics has recently emerged as a promising research avenue for the manipulation of photons at the micron-scale.  A qualitative step forward would be the study of topological properties in photonics in the presence of nonlinearities. We open a post-doc position in the framework of the ERC Starting grant Honeypol devoted to the experimental study of topological effects in polariton lattices, in which topological edge states have been recently evidenced by our group [1, 2, 3].

The work will take place in Lille (1 hour north of Paris, 40 minutes from Brussels) at the laboratory Phlam. It will be performed in close collaboration with the group of Jacqueline Bloch in Paris.

Duration: 2 years (flexible).

Start date: between october 2017 and january 2018.
