About the Project
The growing library of two-dimensional (2D) materials has opened a broad optoelectronic application space spanning the ultra-violet to terahertz region. This Ph.D project is centred around the development of 2D material photodetectors with an emphasis on the fabrication and characterization of van der Waals heterojunction photodiodes.

About the groupSustainable Energy and Environmental Devices Lab is a research group, headed by Dr. James Bullock, within the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Melbourne. This group draws from disciplines such as Electrical Engineering, Materials Science and Chemistry working on topics such as photovoltaics, electro and photocatalysis, 2D materials and photodetectors. More information on the group can be found here: https://people.eng.unimelb.edu.au/jbullock/index.html. Candidates who identify as belonging to groups under-represented in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields are especially encouraged to apply.
