Description of the job

Airbus Safran Launchers (Les Mureaux) is looking for an intern for a six-month placement.

The purpose of your internship will be to develop tools, both digital and experimental, to provide a better appreciation of the effects of the atmosphere on the propagation of light waves for space applications associated with objects in low earth orbit.

This internship will be available from 1 February 2017 (although there is a certain degree of flexibility).

Internships at Airbus Group
Tasks & accountabilities

Your responsibilities will include:

·  Developing a digital code for the propagation of light waves through a turbulent atmosphere, taking into consideration the particular features introduced by the applications concerned, such as variations in the observation conditions over a short time,
·  Developing experimental resources allowing simplified modelling in the laboratory of the effects of turbulence, using a deformable mirror.

Required skills

Candidates should be in their final year at an engineering school, Master's students or university students (5th year) specialising in Engineering / Optics and Opto-electronics.

Ideally, you already have some initial experience.

Candidates should have skills in the following:

·  The physics of optics, optical instrumentation, digital modelling
·  Scientific calculation language (Python, Matlab) and data acquisition (Labview),

Knowledge of the C language would be an advantage.

Candidates must be comfortable working as part of a team and have excellent interpersonal skills.
