Project Description

A Ph.D. position is available in the field of molecular spintronics. In particular we are investigating spin-spin interactions of single molecule magnets (SMMs) deposited on ferromagnetic surfaces. Thereby, we focus on molecules with several intramolecularly coupled magnetic moments. Aiming at spintronic devices comprising molecular components, one of the most important steps is the understanding of the interaction of the molecular magnetic moments with a ferromagnetic surface because any application of molecular spintronics requires control on the molecular level via interfaces to the outside world. Experimental methods are molecular beam epitaxy, spin-polarized scanning tunneling spectroscopy and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism. Possible applicants need to hold a Masters or equivalent degree in Physics or Materials Science. Experience in molecular beam epitaxy and scanning tunneling microscopy is an advantage.


This research is related to Spin+X project A09.
