Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), located just north of Boston, MA seeks a rising Junior/Senior with experience in Optics/Optical Engineering for an internship to support novel compact optical system development.

PSI is developing compact optical systems with improved performance and reduced cost of development. An intern is sought to support characterization of metasurface and diffractive optical components, surrounding systems, and integrated prototype.

The responsibilities of the intern supporting this project include:

  • System and component first-order layout and detailed modeling (e.g. Zemax, MATLAB)
  • System and component measurement in the lab, comparing with modeling.
  • Summary of technical progress with slides brief written reports.

During this internship, the candidate will work with experts in the field to gain experience modeling and  integrating novel metasurface and diffractive optics into optical systems. Reports from this internship will provide input to current future advanced optical system development efforts at PSI.

This internship may be most beneficial for students pursuing degrees in Optics or Optical Engineering. Applied Physics, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering may be acceptable with sufficient optics specialization and lab experience.

US Citizenship or Lawful Permanent Residency is required.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, or status as a protected veteran.
