Postdoctoral position in experimental acoustics

Postdoctoral position in experimental acoustics is open at the Langevin Institute, Paris, for 18 months, starting fall 2013. The subject of work is "Elastic Waves in Complex Media : Regular or disordered metastructures around a simple elementary resonator in thin plates".

The candidate will explore both fundamental and applied aspects of elastic waves in thin plates in interaction with a periodic or disordered medium based on strongly coupled acoustic resonators. Of particular interest is the possibility to investigate new wave phenomena by designing artificial meta-structures for elastic waves similar to the ones investigated in optics or electromagnetic waves, such as photonic crystals and metamaterials. A sub-wavelength super resonator has been identified, which will serve as the building block to design metastructures to demonstrate new physical properties as negative refraction, super- and hyper-resolution or Anderson localization.
The candidate will be in charge of most of the experiments. A good background in acoustic and elastic waves is preferred. Skills in data analysis and image processing are required.
This work is part of a project which brings together three leading laboratories in wave physics and acoustics, the Langevin Institute (Paris), the Fresnel Institute (Marseille) and the LAUM (Le Mans). It is currently supported by the French National Research Agency (ANR).
