Research Fellowship Opportunity in the Directorate of Technology, Engineering and Quality. ESA is an equal opportunity employer, committed to achieving diversity within the workforce and creating an inclusive working environment. Applications from women are encouraged. Post Internal Research Fellow PostDoc in Radio Frequency RF plasma discharge modelling and coupling optimisation for atomic clocks This post is classified F2. Location ESTEC, Noordwijk, The Netherlands Our team and mission This position is located in the RF Equipment and Technology Section of the RF Payloads Technology Division and is focused on the RF plasma discharge modelling, characterization and validation for its application in ultrastable time references such as atomic clocks. The RF Payloads Technology Division is responsible for RF payloads, instruments and technologies for space and ground applications, including all equipment having a RF spaceground interface and its associated laboratories. The Division supports the definition, specification and developmentprocurement of laboratories either for ESA projects and technology programmes or external customers. Within the Division, the RF Equipment and Technology Section provides functional support to ESA projects and carries out technological research RD in the fields of RF equipment and building blocks, active and passive components, technologies and related design and characterisation tools. Fields of activitiesresearch Controlled RF plasma discharges are used in atomic clocks for atom flux creation by means of molecular dissociation or as a spectral optical source for population inversion in double resonance schemes. At the same time, atomic clocks are increasingly becoming a key technology for space applications, where onboard ultrastable time references are required. This is the case for future scientific missions, such as ACES, which will provide an inorbit time reference and also, on a much larger scale, for the GNSS constellations for which multiple atomic clocks are embarked on each satellite. A detailed understanding of RF plasma discharge evolution over clock lifetime and its optimization to improve the signal to noise and then the performance of the atomic clocks are therefore important research fields. The tasks assigned to the selected candidate will include RF plasma discharge modelling and validation, discharge optimization, analysis and prevention of wearout effects and validation of the identified solution by experimental tests in the ESTEC laboratories. The outcomes of this work will be fed into future developments.
