*** this position has been closed. ***

I joined the Electrical Engineering faculty of Notre Dame in 2018 after graduating from MIT, and I am currently seeking Ph.D. students to join my group. My research is in the area of quantum optoelectronics and photonics, which is an exciting interdisciplinary area that combines electronics, photonics, and applied physics. Our mission is to:
  • Use nanoscale engineering to push beyond the limits of conventional electronics and photonics, exploiting quantum phenomena to create devices that interact with the world in extraordinary new ways.
  • Engineer new coherent processes to make devices that utilize the entire electromagnetic spectrum—particularly the extremely challenging terahertz and mid- infrared wavelength regimes.
  • Approach technology development from all levels, not only seeking to perform basic science and using newly-discovered phenomena to create devices, but also using those devices to create systems that seek to address the world’s key challenges.
Depending on the student’s interests, they can pursue topics ranging from the applied— chip-scale QCL frequency combs, computational sensing, etc.—to the more fundamental— studies of comb coherence, new materials systems, etc. For more information on my research, please visit www.dburghoff.com. If you are interested, please feel free to contact me at dburghoff@nd.edu.
