Optical and Optoelectronics Engineer

  • Optical and Optoelectronics Engineer

    For the ITER Project we are looking for a (freelance/self-employed) Optical and Optoelectronics Engineer to support the Diagnostics team. The duration shall be for a period of 12 months. One day per week is expected to be worked on-site.

Job overview

The ITER project is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject, which will be the worlds largest magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment. It will study the potential of controlled nuclear fusion to provide energy for mankind.

In order to study the behavior of this device, a set of monitoring systems (referred to as Diagnostics) is required. These Diagnostics will provide the information required to understand the performance of the device. This contract is specifically aimed at the In Vessel Lighting system.The work described below is related to the support to the specification, design and analysis of diagnostics in the field of optics, optomechanics and optoelectronics. This will include the feasibility study, analysis and specifications of the optical, optomechanical and optoelectronic components to achieve the requirements.

Tasks & Responsibilities

  • The tasks to be performed within this contract fall within the following categories.Perform feasibility studies and analysis in the fields of optics, optomechanics and optoelectronics for diagnostics;
  • Develop specifications in the fields of optics, optomechanics and optoelectronics for diagnostics;
  • Support definition of interfaces and diagrams;
  • Provide cost estimations of optical, optomechanical and optoelectronic systems for diagnostics;
  • Provide design in the fields of optics, optomechanics and optoelectronics for diagnostics.


  • Minimum 10 years experience in optics and optoelectronics;
  • Minimum 5 years experience with optical systems in the field of nuclear installations comparable to ITER;
  • Minimum 5 years experience with diagnostic systems comparable to those of ITER;
  • Minimum 5 years experience with plasma or high energy physics devices;
  • Minimum 5 years experience with the technical follow-up of CAD activities;
  • Minimum 5 years experience in project management;
  • Minimum 5 years experience with system diagrams;
  • Experience with vacuum-compatible materials and processes would be an advantage.
