Helion is building the ultimate solution to one of the world's most pressing challenges - climate change. Our goals are courageous – we plan to demonstrate electricity from fusion in 2024. We move fast, prioritize what matters, and iterate quickly so we can accelerate everything we do.
At Helion, we grow and learn together while working with never-before-seen technology. A career here means you will interact with the world's leading scientists, engineers, and builders. Be part of our team – bring your skills, experiences, and determination to make a difference. Together we'll make a future with unlimited clean energy a reality.
In this unique role, you will work on characterizing various plasma parameters including electron/ion temperature, and plasma impurities. This will include assisting in running current optical diagnostics as well as spearheading the development of new, more advanced spectroscopic methods.
What You'll Be Doing:
Support and recommend improvements to existing optical diagnostics
Design, build, and interpret data from new systems capable of using spectroscopic data to obtain electron/ion plasma temperature
Develop systems to monitor impurity lines from the visible, UV and x-ray spectrum
Clearly document diagnostic systems and organize large amounts of data.
Ph.D. in physics or a related field or equivalent experience in spectroscopic methods
Demonstrated expertise in techniques using atomic spectroscopy to characterize plasma
Experience quantifying impurities in keV plasmas via x-ray spectroscopy
Understanding of advanced spectroscopic techniques such as recombination spectroscopy
Who We Are
