This is a fantastic opportunity for a recent PHD with expertise in Nano-imprint lithography who wants to work in a fabrication development team within AR optical displays.

The role: 

  • This is an opportunity to work in our talented Waveguide Development team, based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire 
  • This role will be an opportunity to apply your skills and knowledge to real engineering challenges of developing improved Nanoimprinting processes 
  • We have a semi-fabless manufacturing environment; in this role you will be working hand-on on various fabrication, nano-characterization, and failure analysis activities as well as coordinating external partners 
  • You will have great problem-solving skills and will research and develop new manufacturing solutions and novel fabrication approaches 
  • Root cause and resolve discrepancies between measured and modelled performance of diffractive waveguides related to manufacturing failures 


  • Master or PhD (preferred) in Nanotechnology, Materials, Photonics, or Physics 
  • Hands-on experience with nanoimprint lithography or similar types of lithography or nanoreplication 
  • Hands on nano-characterization experience with SEM/AFM and experience reporting nano- characterization results 
  • Knowledge of White Light Interferometry, Ellipsometry, FTIRand polymers used in nanoimprint lithography 
  • Numerical analysis and data visualization using tools such as MATLAB, Scientific Python, JMP, etc 
  • Strong verbal / written communication and reasoning skills, quick learner with great problem-solving skills, happy to adapt to short timescales and challenging deliverables 


  • Experience of using your nanofabrication and nano-characterisation skills and knowledge in an industrial environment 
  • Experience with optical measurements of diffractive structures, optical metamaterials, or similar nanostructures
