ERC funded PhD position on “Implementation of site-specific arrays of multi-responsive nanorods into integrated devices”
A PhD student position is opened on the ERC project “Smart Core/Shell Nanorod arrays for artificial skins applications” (Projekt Nummer 715403). The project aims at the development of nanorods of a hybrid material made of a smart hydrogel core with a piezoelectric shell of Zinc oxide. The nanorods will be responsive to temperature, humidity and pressure. The goal of the PhD thesis will be to design a template for the implementation of the nanorods in a functional array and the characterization of the electric and piezoelectric performance of the arrays and nanorod units. Vapor-based deposition techniques and nanoimprint lithography will be used to create the arrays, plus several techniques for the characterization of thin films. The work will be performed in close collaboration with the Joanneum Research (JR) Institute-Weiz.
