Laser Systems – Systems Analysis:

The Laser Technology and Applications Group is a technology-centric group with a deep connection to mission and system applications . The group works with mission partners and government organizations to develop fiber, semiconductor and solid-state lasers as well as laser beam control systems and other enabling technologies for directed energy, sensing, communications, and scientific applications. It is a multi-disciplinary group, with expertise that spans laser design and testing, optical and fiber-optical fabrication, and systems analysis of laser applications. These activities range from demonstrating new materials and innovative laser devices in the laboratory to designing and field-testing complete optical systems.


The Laser Technology and Applications Group, Group 82, is seeking a Technical Staff to further the group’s mission to provide breakthrough warfighting capabilities through the application of advanced laser technology. The successful applicant will have an interest and ability to learn outside their field of study to obtain technical breadth in support of mission and systems analyses, wave optics modeling, analytic math and physics, and code development.  The applicant will also help execute efforts to define applications, metrics,  and requirements as needed to support laser technological drives within the group.  Finally, the applicant will interface with a variety of internal and external organizations to help evolve analysis efforts, technology development, and system prototypes.

The Group 82 staffing profile is diverse with expertise in physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer science, and engineering. Activities in Group 82 typically require multidisciplinary approaches, so the applicant will be expected to possess technical breadth, an awareness of emerging technologies, and experience with analyzing end-to-end systems. The applicant will work in a team environment to study a broad range of technical questions of importance to the U.S. use of lasers. This work involves data analysis, mathematical modeling, and software simulation of laser systems and applications, including end-to-end scenario analyses of high energy lasers, laser arrays, ladar systems, etc.


A Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering or other technical field is required. In lieu of a Ph.D., a MSEE with a minimum of 5 years of directly related experience will be considered.

The candidate must have demonstrated competence in scientific writing and/or development and presentation of technical materials. The candidate will need to be able to clearly present concepts to a wide spectrum of audiences.
