Job title: Application Engineer
Location: Southampton, U.K.
The Role: Responsible for demonstrating
the capability of Mesophotonics proprietary visible light sources
to meet customer requirements. Responsibilities include the building
of one off demonstration systems integrating Mesophotonics components
with 3rd party optical and optoelectronic components. This person
should then be confident in conducting customer demonstrations both
in the UK and abroad at customer sites and trade shows. This will
involve extensive collaboration with customers and require optics
and electronics expertise.
This person will also develop system requirements

visible optical and electronic components. Direct sales experience
Mesophotonics is commercialising breakthrough photonic crystal technology
that allows light to be bent, routed and processed at sub-millimetre
scale. This will enable multiple optical functions and complex systems
to be implemented at high density on a single silicon chip, leading
the way to low cost, high volume production of integrated optical
devices. Additional optical devices will also be possible at efficiencies
and sizes not previously achievable as photonic band gaps are used
to modify fundamentally how light is generated inside photonic crystals.
The company was founded in 2001 by Prof. Greg Parker and a team
of 7 founders from 3 departments at the University of Southampton
with expertise in modelling fabrication design and characterisation.
Venture capital funding is provided by Quester Capital Management
(London), BTG (London), Auriga Partners (Paris) and NIF (Tokyo).
