We are actively seeking enthusiastic and motivated interns to join our Soft Matter Photonics Laboratory in National Dong Hwa University, which is located in the eastern Taiwan. This is a unique opportunity for the participant to gain in-depth insights into the field of optical technology, participating in cutting-edge projects such as novel liquid crystal laser development, light-triggered actuators, tunable optical devices, and more.

The participant will get involved in sample preparation through advanced fabrication skills for liquid crystal/polymer mixtures, such as direct-ink-printing and two-photon polymerization direct laser writing (2PP-DLW), and gain experience from building various optical setups such as optical tweezers, holographic imaging, and micro-photoluminescence (micro-PL). The applicant is expected to collaborate with the team, share experiment progress, and provide insights and suggestions.

1. Currently enrolled in a relevant academic program, especially welcoming graduate and post-graduate students majoring in photonics, physics, materials science, or related disciplines.
2. Strong interest in the field of photonics, demonstrating a proactive attitude towards learning and participating in experimental activities.
3. Basic laboratory skills and a collaborative team spirit are essential.
4. Proficient in English communication.
