Job description:  

Barco offers a broad product range of high-end projectors. In these products, Barco uses a wide variety of optical components, ranging from projections lenses which allow projecting an image formed on the spatial light modulating device (typically a DMD) to a projection screen, to optical components integrated into the projector's internal structure, such as diffusers, lenses, dichroic filters and mirrors. All the properties of each individual element have to be carefully considered, in order to come to best possible design. Every single element can potentially affect a projector's specifications, including its cost, physical appearance and performance.

Therefore, properly characterizing optical elements in order to obtain a detailed performance assessment of the optical components plays a key role in the optical design of projectors. Although Barco has many tools and setups available to do proper analyses of such components, there are still possible improvements/expansions to be made.

Your project  

The goal of this work will be to create and optimize suitable setups for the characterization of optical components. This is a multidisciplinary challenge; as such setups require a well-considered mechanical configuration, as well as the proper definition of the measurements to be performed using the best-suited devices, and dedicated processing of the acquired data.Simulation software can be used as a tool for these setups: CAD programs can be used to create mechanical drawings and optical simulation software can help to define the proper tests, and to interpret & validate the obtained results.

Your profile:  

As this topic is multidisciplinary, we look for several people with several possible profiles:

You are a student photonics or applied physics.You are a student industrial science: electromechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering.As you will be working together multidisciplinary, you are a strong team player & communicator.You are fluent in English

Our offer:  

An interesting internship with lot's of opportunities to learn and put your knowledge into practice.A enthousiastic team of young professionals to support youRoom for initiative & autonomyAn international, high-tech environmentA compensation for your meals and your travel
