NASA Team Finds Noxious Ice Cloud on Saturn's Moon Titan Researchers with NASA's Cassini mission found evidence of a toxic hybrid ice in a wispy cloud high above the south pole of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. The finding is a new demonstration of the complex chemistry occurring in Titan's atmosphere-in this case, cloud formation in the giant moon's stratosphere-and part of a collection of processes that ultimately helps deliver a smorgasbord of organic molecules to Titan's surface. Inv...

ESO's fleet of telescopes in Chile have detected the first visible counterpart to a gravitational wave source. These historic observations suggest that this unique object is the result of the merger of two neutron stars. The cataclysmic aftermaths of this kind of merger - long-predicted events called kilonovae - disperse heavy elements such as gold and platinum throughout the Universe. This discovery, published in several papers in the journal Nature and elsewhere, also provides the strongest ev...

For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. Shortly after 8:41 a.m. EDT on Aug. 17, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a pulse of high-energy light from a powerful explosion, which was immediately reported to astronomers around the globe as a short gamma-ray burst. The scientists at the National S...

The first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere, Sentinel-5P, has been launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. The 820 kg satellite was carried into orbit on a Rockot launcher at 09:27 GMT (11:27 CEST) today. The first stage separated 2 min 16 sec after liftoff, followed by the fairing and second stage at 3 min 3 sec and 5 min 19 sec, respectively. The upper stage then fired twice, delivering Sentinel-5P to its final orbit 79 min after liftoff. ...

The first full-scale model of the rocket motor that will propel Ariane 6 and Vega-C into orbit has been cast and filled with inert propellant for testing at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. The P120C is the largest solid-propellant rocket motor ever built in one segment. Each P120C will hold over 140 tonnes of propellant in a carbon fibre casing almost 11.5 m long and about 3.4 m in diameter. It is derived from Vega's current first stage motor, the P80, which holds 88 tonnes of propell...

There's no map showing all the billions of exoplanets hiding in our galaxy -- they're so distant and faint compared to their stars, it's hard to find them. Now, astronomers hunting for new worlds have established a possible signpost for giant exoplanets. A new study finds that giant exoplanets that orbit far from their stars are more likely to be found around young stars that have a disk of dust and debris than those without disks. The study, published in The Astronomical Journal, focused on ...

Astronomers have identified a bumper crop of dual supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. This discovery could help astronomers better understand how giant black holes grow and how they may produce the strongest gravitational wave signals in the Universe. The new evidence reveals five pairs of supermassive black holes, each containing millions of times the mass of the Sun. These black hole couples formed when two galaxies collided and merged with each other, forcing their superma...

    CV

    GOAL WITH THE EMPLOYMENT

    To work in an international environment as an Applied Physics Engineer, preferable within R&D. I am especially interested in experimental physics, measurement techniques, simulations/modeling/data processing (MATLAB, LabVIEW, Python etc.), photonics and nano-physics. A combination of theory, simulations and experiments is desired.

    MAIN SKILLS

    - Master of Science in Engineering Physics

    - Work experience of Radio Frequency Systems & Software Engineer from ESA’s Young Graduate ---Trainee program

    - Language: Swedish (Native), English (fluent), German (fair)

    - Committee & student associations active

    - Taken several international courses abroad

    EDUCATION

    2008–2013: Engineering Physics MSc, Chalmers University of Technology (300hp, 5 years)

    In my master of science program Applied Physics I learned even more simulation & modeling, computational physics, experimental physics, material physics, nano-physics and imaging techniques.

    My master thesis, Transportable Optical Frequency Comb,was performed at the measurement department of SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden. The first part of the work was focused on to understand how a commercial optical frequency comb works in detail; which essentially consists of a pulsed laser, free-space optical equipment and control electronics. This system is naturally sensitive for several environmental parameters (mainly temperature, humidity and vibration). Thereafter I investigated how to adjust it to be long distance transportable and verify the result with frequency measurements with an external laser; in which I used Allan Variance plot for stability and noise determinations. I especially learned aboutoptoelectronics, free-space optics, metrology and optical frequency measurements.

    My bachelor thesis, Exploration of Quantum Decay in Modulated Potential Wells, was performed at MC2, the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers. The work was focused on quantum Zeeno effect, which required analytical calculations compared with simulations in MATLAB.

    I have through the years learned how to use the software: MATLAB, LabVIEW, Python, Mathematica, LaTeX and Java; in which I have performed simulations, modeling, algorithm writing and data processing.

    2005-2008: Natural Science Program (Upper Secondary School)

    Read both Natural Science and Math-Computer orientation, augmented by extra courses to 3150 points (2500 points Annual, 2750 with the final grade). Read particular German Step 5, English C, Swedish C, Psychology and Organization & Leadership.

    EMPLOYMENT

    2014-2015: European Space Agency (Young Graduate Trainee program)

    The YGT project is performed at ESA’s European Space Operation Center facility at the division of Human Space Operations in the section Ground Stations Systems. It is furthermore in collaboration with the GNSS facility at ESOC and has Timetech as main supplier of equipment.

    In this project I am assisting the realization of the universal coordinated time of ESOC, whichwill be used as a local time reference for ESOC and its space applications. It consists of acomplex setup of RF & GNSS timing equipment with the need of real time monitoring and data processing. I am involved in the system setup, characterization and monitoring.  

    My main tasks have been:

    - Characterization of the time reference equipment and its environment (includes stability and noise floor measurements using Allan deviation calculations, RF equipment delay measurements and investigating environmental parameters)

    - Trend analysis of Hydrogen Maser parameters using MATLAB (sensitive to several environmental parameters as well as to natural aging and hydrogen depletion)

    - Creating application specific software for real time monitoring and data processing, e.g. a software for the Phase Comparator in LabVIEW for data acquisition (via TCP packages), data processing (OADEV, DAVAR stability calculations and visuality) and automatic upload to FTP-server.

    Software used in particular: MATLAB, LabVIEW, Stable32, Network protocol analyzer, Telnet & SSH & FTP clients

    Equipment used in particular: Hydrogen Maser, Phase Comparator, Timing Receivers, Micro Phase Stepper (Frequency Offset Generator)
