Optical/mechanical optimization and calibration of differential spectrometers for millimeter-wave astronomy

Please note that the job is no longer active!

In the framework of a PRIN project and of the space missions on the CMB, we are developing custom large-throughput differential spectrometers, able to feed large arrays of bolometers, and with high common-mode rejection. The selected candidate will contribute to the optical optimization and mechanical design of the instruments, and will be in charge of the calibration and of the scan control system.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
