The Laser Test Engineer will be required to test laser systems in a laboratory production environment and will be primarily responsible for execution, development, calibration, and documentation of a range of high power diode laser test stations as part of the production process. The role will involve the optical assembly, test and characterisation of Nd:YAG laser systems.
Teamwork, high-quality standards and excellent oral and written communication skills are essential. The Laser Test Engineer must be able to work proactively and independently.
Key responsibilities and accountabilities:
Carrying out high power laser diode testing including; power, spectrum, near-field and far-field beam profiling, polarization, and thermal performance on a variety of mounted and unmounted laser diode bars and chips.
- Development and documentation of operating procedures for high power diode laser testing stations.
- Development, execution and documentation of calibration procedures for high power diode laser testing stations.
- Performs the set-up, calibration, testing and troubleshooting of circuits, components, instruments and mechanical assemblies.
- Recommending solutions to technical problems
- Analysis of testing data and presentation of complex results in a consistent and concise reporting format.
- New test station and methodology development including integration of equipment hardware and software.
- Manage test scheduling and results database.
- Continuous focus on improvement of test station accuracy, repeatability, and productivity.
- Working knowledge of measurement instrumentation such as optical power measurement heads, pulsed and CW current sources, micro-positioning and scanning systems.
- Excellent problem-solving skills based on an analytical approach to tasks.
- Work effectively with co-workers and others by sharing ideas in a constructive, positive manner; listening to and objectively considering ideas and suggestions from others.
- Keeping commitments and keeping others informed of work progress and issues.
- Applicants should ideally have a graduate degree in an experimental science or an engineering subject and be able to demonstrate good practical and problem-solving capabilities.
