The Holographic System Engineer will be part of the core team researching and developing next-generation holographic head up display (HUD) technology for the automotive industry. The team applies world-leading holographic science and optical engineering to realise game-changing improvements in HUD performance and packaging. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work with experts in diverse fields to push the limits of this technology forwards.
Duties and Responsibilities
Conceive, design and build optical bench experiments to understand and optimise novel display concepts based on digital holography.
Evaluate experimentally original components and technology for digital holographic systems.
Use an understanding of interactions between optics, holographic algorithms, electronics, software and mechanical design to recommend system optimisation and HUD prototype design (working with expert mechanical, optical, electronic & software engineers).
Build, optimise and analyse HUD prototypes derived from successful optical bench setups.
Develop algorithms for holographic projection systems [depending on candidate capability].
Advance the state-of-the-art of digital holographic displays and HUDs.
MSc/PhD in Photonics, Physics, Electronic/Photonic engineering or equivalent (including fields of image/signal processing, cameras and display systems). MSc/PhD in other technical fields acceptable if augmented by significant hands-on experience (3+years) of R&D in photonics.
Optics in theory and practice – laser optics, wave propagation, imaging optics.
Optical systems – considerations in optical system design, optical components and specifications, interfacing optical systems with electronics/software.
Good to have:
Digital holography – theoretical and practical knowledge of creating 2D and 3D holographic projections and computation of digital holograms.
Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) – understanding of underlying technology and their practical use (especially LCOS).
Laser diodes – handling, practical operation and properties of light emission.
Photonics – Fourier optics, optical coatings, metrology of optical elements.
Laser safety – considerations for eye safety in laser-based display technologies.
Automotive – requirements for automotive testing and qualification of photonic technologies.
Displays – state-of-the-art display technologies and display characteristics (especially HUD).
