Crystallographic properties of organic films for transistor applications
Postdoc position on "Thermocrystals by Atomic Layer Deposition”
A postdoc position is opened for working on a joint project between TU-Graz and the MCL-COMET center. The project aims at the experimental and theoretical development of methods to computationally design, and to physically fabricate, thermocrystals that can be used as coherent phonon sources, filters and detectors. The thermocrystals will consist of superlattices with well-defined thickness and low concentration of defects.
Silicon Photonics - a PhD at CERN
We are currently looking for a PhD Student to join our team at CERN with academic supervision from Bristol University. We are in the Electronic Systems for Experiments Group that develops optical data transmission systems to read-out and control particle physics experiments here at CERN. We have a future-looking project to use Silicon Photonics and are currently investigating the applicability and especially the radiation tolerance of such components. The PhD student would work on measuring the radiation effects in different Silicon Photonics components and systems but also work on simulating the devices to understand and possibly mitigate the observed effects.
Inorganic/Organic interfaces play a crucial role for the performance of organic electronic devices, such as OLED-TVs and photovoltaic cell. Of particular interest is the interface geometry, since the structure determines most, if not all, of its properties. However, determining the structure experimentally often proves to be difficult due to the small amount of material that is used. There is, therefore, a strong need of theoretical support. To provide this support, my group and I have recently developed a Machine Learning based algorithm that allows determining the interface structure with a higher precision, and at a lower cost, than any other existing approach.
The performance of organic electronic devices is strongly influenced by the charge-carrier mobility of the organic component. Recently, computational scientists at the TU Munich have predicted a novel molecule with the potential to exhibit outstanding characteristics. So far, however, experimental verification was unsuccessful. This is because the material’s properties depend not only on its chemistry, but also on its crystal structure, i.e. the polymorph that it assumes. This, in turn, is strongly influenced by the deposition conditions and the nature of the substrate.
