The role:

Based in Abingdon, Oxfordshire this position would be reporting into our Head of Products and capabilities. You will be part of our R&D team delivering innovative products to the AR market

You will:

  • You will apply in-house optical modelling techniques for development of new product designs
  • Correlate modelled with measured results to improve the fidelity and predictive power of models
  • Incorporate data from physical measurements of nanostructures into models (from SEM, AFM etc)

What we need to see: 

  • Masters/PhD in mathematics, physics or engineering
  • Expertise in physical/wave optical or diffractive optics modelling and verification techniques (FDTD, RCWA/FMM etc) or solid knowledge of electromagnetic modelling
  • Strong algorithm development, numerical optimisation and scripting skills (Python or MATLAB)
  • Experience of optical metrology techniques to verify performance of diffractive structures
  • Understanding of colorimetry, photometry and visual optics
  • Understanding of polarisation measurement and modelling, including Jones calculus and related techniques
  • Happy to adapt to short timescales and deliverables
  • Can demonstrate good organisation and planning suitable for R&D projects


  • Experience of designing diffractive structures using algorithmic approaches such as IFTA
  • Understanding of optical raytracing algorithms
  • Experience with optical system design tools such as Zemax, CodeV, FRED, ASAP
  • Experience of using wave optical modelling tools such as Lumerical
