About the Project
The devices will be grown using our ultrahigh vacuum molecular beam epitaxy (UHV-MBE) system in the Department, which can maintain an vacuum as low as 1.2x10-8 Pa. The devices will then be patterned in the state-of-the-art electron beam lithography system in Leeds, where we have 25% share. This system can pattern 7 nm feature with stitching and overlay accuracy of <1 and <7 nm, respectively. The successful devices will be measured by our transport measurement setup, which can handle signals up to GHz frequency and temperature down to 350 mK.
We have been active in the field of spintronics with many collaborators within the UK, EU and worldwide. We also work closely with the Department of Physics. PhD students are normally given an opportunity to present their work at the annual domestic Magnetism conference and at least once in an international conference, such as the International Conference on Magnetism or Magnetism and Magnetic Materials.
Candidates should have (or expect to obtain) a minimum of a UK upper second class honours degree (2.1) or equivalent in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics, Music Technology or a closely related subject.
