I have need of a researcher/post-doc on a project in electro-optics. This is to develop a fast Maxwellian view display using a DLP and our own drivers, and high brightness LEDs. The project is well along, the display works, but it needs more. The present researcher has been recruited to another job (this happens when you have good people). Can start any time, go until March at least.
