Thin film physics is spectacularly driving the development of optics for the short, XUV wavelength range. The understanding and control of atomic-scale, thin film processes has delivered multilayered Bragg structures, acting as XUV reflectors. These have enabled innovations like the fine-printing of nanoscale chip features for semiconductor processes, and X-ray metrology equipment for high-sensitivity materials analysis.
The University of Twente now offers a full professor position to exploit the underlaying materials science of these optics further, in order to manipulate short-wavelength light for a variety of new applications. Opportunities range from multilayered optics engineered with atomic precision to show record-high reflectivity, to highly transparent, nanoscale-thin membranes robust enough to withstand high power. The key challenge is to develop the missing physics understanding for the new thin film optics: atomically thin, complex layered materials systems should satisfy optics laws in the XUV range.
The XUV Optics group at the University of Twente holds a strong track record in the physical understanding of ultra-thin single and multilayer systems, with an exceptional infrastructure of thin film synthesis and analysis instrumentation. The group is linked to development programmes of relevant high-tech industry and three of the world’s leading industrial players in these fields are supporting the XUV group: ASML on the development of the latest generation of high-resolution lithography equipment, Carl Zeiss SMT on the ultimate optics for this, and Malvern Panalytical on state-of-the-art X-ray metrology.
- You are a leading, international expert with an acknowledged track record of independent, original research on the physics and chemistry of thin films, multilayers for short-wavelength optics, and/or plasma- and photo-chemistry at these optics;
- You are able to inspire and motivate others, with a proven leadership in running a mixed group of scientific researchers, technical engineers, and pre- and post-graduate students;
- You have a track record of collaboration with industrial parties and governmental institutions, exploiting a network of academic and industrial contacts, and a demonstrated capacity to raise research funds through national and international schemes of public and private nature;
