Laser Scientist/Engineer

Alpes Lasers SA is a Swiss company specialized in the development and fabrication of advanced light sources in the infrared (IR) spectral range. Our company was founded 20 years ago and was the first company in the world to commercialize Quantum Cascade Lasers. These lasers are becoming increasingly important in chemical sensing applications based on IR spectroscopy and in directional infrared countermeasure (DIRCM) applications.

Our company is currently working on the development and launching the production of novel product lines, including high power QCLs, optical frequency comb QCLs, tunable lasers, and various laser systems.

Your role : Within the R&D team, you will actively participate in the conception and characterization of  prototypes and to the transfer into production of laser products. You will contribute to the design, realization, and qualification of new laser sources and subsystems and to the optimization of the manufacturing and characterization procedures. 

Your activities in details : 
  • Design IR laser sources and systems
  • Characterize and analyze laser sources and systems
  • Develop and implement manufacturing and characterization procedures
