Research Scientist – Energy Efficient Optical Solutions

Company Details

LyteLoop is the future of data storage - “Storage in Motion”

Since late 2015, we have been perfecting our proprietary, patent pending photonic method of data storage which puts data in a constant state of perpetual motion. Achieved through the use of ultra-high bandwidth lasers, data now moves in an endless circulating loop, taking up less space and using less electricity.

LyteLoop’s revolutionary “storage in motion” technique will transform how data is stored while providing a myriad of unique and customizable advantages based on the desired LyteLoop application deployed. LyteLoop now makes it possible to harness the power of data while consuming less energy. This exceptional technology not only increases data storage performance and utilization, but also reduces the total cost of ownership. Our advance offers a clear competitive edge for those coping with the limitations of wasteful data storage systems.

Using state of the art photonics technology Lyteloop patented IP will enable countless applications including huge power savings for Data Centers, less heat production, cybersecurity solutions and many additional applications. In order to develop its innovative ideas, Lyteloop is looking to expand its R&D team by adding a Research Scientist to focus primarily on Energy-Efficient Optical Solutions. This position is located in our offices in Great Neck, Long Island, NY.

Key technical requirements:

  • Experience designing and implementing transceivers based on coherent and direct detection
  • Generation of optical frequency combs based on ring resonators, modulators, and parametric mixing
  • Strong knowledge of nonlinear optical phenomena including self-phase modulation, four-wave mixing, stimulated Brillouin scattering, supercontinuum generation
  • Modeling and prototyping of electro-optical modulators, RF/microwave photonic components and interfaces
  • Experience in laser frequency stabilization mechanisms and circuitry
  • Familiarity with the ASIC design and circuitry for data and clock recovery of transceivers
  • Competency in the design of optical/electrical analog circuits such as Phase-locked loops (PLL)
  • Familiarity with Photonic Silicon-on-chip design and optimization

The following is mandatory:

  • PhD or MS with 3 years of R&D experience in Photonics, electronic-photonic integration
  • Experience with homodyne and self-homodyne detection
  • Excellent programming skills in MATLAB, Python, Mathematica

We offer a generous remuneration package in a modern working environment on Long Island easily commutable to/from New York City.
