Investigating the Nanoscale Synthesis of 2D Materials for Advanced Flexible Electronics
Graphene and the wider family of 2D materials are an exciting platform upon which to build the next-generation of electronic devices. From flexible transparent circuits, to new forms of switching devices, the unique properties of these nanoengineered layered systems have much potential for the realisation of advanced electronics.
Systematic material growth studies will be conducted using the Nano Lab’s chemical vapour deposition reactors with the applicant expected to develop commercially viable and scalable transfer methodologies of the as-grown materials. The fabricated samples will be assessed using Baths University’s extensive metrology facilities, with the successful candidate’s research focussing on exploring the underlying growth of various emerging semiconducting 2D materials in addition to exploring the synthesised materials electronic properties.

The successful applicant will ideally have graduated (or be due to graduate) with an undergraduate Masters degree (first class or upper second-class) or MSc distinction (or overseas equivalent) in electrical engineering, materials science, physics or related discipline. Candidates whose first language is not English should have an IELTS score of 6.5 (minimum 6.0 in each module) or equivalent.
