We are currently seeking innovative Research Scientists with experience in optical science and polarization optics to develop advanced polarization patterning solutions, paving the way to the next generation near-to-eye augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) displays. This is a full-time position and requires an advanced degree in Physics, Optical Science, Electric Engineering, Materials Science, or similar. Successful candidates must have industry experience in setting crucial partnerships with cross-functional teams internally and externally and be comfortable working in a dynamic cross-cultural and fast-paced team.


Ph.D. degree or equivalent experience in Physics, Optical Science, Electric Engineering, Materials Science, or similar.

Experience with polarization optics and how holographic optical elements work and are made.

3+ years of experience leading projects through full cycle from early-stage concept to mass-producible or commercialized product for the consumer electronics industry.

5+ years of direct working experience in one or more roles in interference lithography tools development, such as an Optical Engineer, Opto-Mechanical Engineer, Physical Optics Research Scientist, or Optical System Architect role.

3+ years of working experience in one or more optical modeling tools, such as polarization optics and physical optics modeling tools, MATLAB, Python, COMSOL, and methods such as Jones Matrix, FDTD, or RCWA, etc., or optical system design and polarization ray tracing tools including FRED, CODE V or ZEMAX.

Experience in Project Management and collaboration with cross-functional teams solving complex technical problems.


Lead research and development in polarization holograms recording and metrology on flat and curved surfaces, enabling next generation near-to-eye augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) display designs.

Develop viable, scalable, and profitable patterning capabilities, including both methods and tools for recording materials with anisotropy on flat and curved surfaces through optical designs and experimental validations.

Set project roadmaps, timelines, and deliverables, proactively communicating the project status with stakeholders, and mitigating project risks to ensure the success.

Initiate new partnerships based on business needs, and support on-going team external engagements.

Collaborate with the internal Optics research team, Opto-Mechanical Engineering teams, and external tools vendors to develop customized hologram recording systems, enabling 2D/3D anisotropy structures on flat and curved surfaces to meet dynamic project needs.

Collaborate closely with team members to establish the simulation, fabrication, and metrology close loop for advanced devices with anisotropy and their performance in AR/VR displays.

Collaborate with the larger research and product development team to explore concepts, evaluate, and drive new devices development to create compelling experiences at system level.

Additional Requirements(额外要求)

Experience in communicating to champion initiatives internally and externally, including compiling clear and concise briefing materials, for effective communication with executive management and external partners.

Experience in coaching and/or mentoring teammates.

3+ years of research experience in applying existing and emerging optical technologies and incubating an idea from concept validation to system improvement of NEDs.

3+ years of research experience with holographic optical elements in design, fabrication, and metrology.

Experience in tolerance analysis of optical systems, and/or aberration correction.

Experience in free-form optics design.

Growth mindset with experience in managing ambiguity and conflict of interest at work.

Solid interpersonal skills for cross-group and cross-cultural collaboration.
