PhD in optics of 2D materials beyond graphene
Applications are invited for a PhD position in physics and devices of 2D materials. In this project, you will carry out fabrication and optical investigations of novel heterostructures built from layered 2D materials beyond graphene. You will fabricate 2D heterostructures to study single-photon emitting centres in atomically thin films, explore spin and valley physics in 2D semiconductors, and carry out advanced Raman scattering studies to discover 2D superconductivity. Applicants for this post are expected to have strong backgrounds in solid state physics and have completed a Masters in this or related discipline.
Applications are accepted any time before the closing date of 31st of March 2016. PhD start date is September or October 2016.
For any inquiries about the post, please contact Prof Alexander Tartakovskii at: [email protected]
