Progress in nanotechnology has led to an enormous interest in two-dimensional (2D) materials, having a huge market potential in electronics. In addition to exploiting the novel properties of individual 2D crystals, van der Waals heterostructures (vdWh) comprising several different materials hold promise for novel devices with designed properties. In this project, we will integrate mechanically stable and transferable nanolayers (5-10 nm) of organic semiconductors (OSC) with inorganic 2D materials, which could contribute significantly to technological advancement by exploiting the properties of both materials. The PhD research will focus on interfacial electronic properties in such structures, mainly studied by photoelectron electron spectroscopy, using lab facilities and external synchrotron facilities. The project is associated to the The Graphene Flagship, a Future and Emerging Technology Flagship by the European Commission.
- You have a MSc degree and a strong background in physics, applied physics, electrical engineering, or a closely related discipline, with an interest in condensed matter physics and preferably two-dimensional materials.
- Experience with two-dimensional materials in an experimental research setting is a plus.
- You should be a team player with excellent communication skills and should be fluent in English.
- You will collaborate actively with junior and senior researchers from participating teams in different countries.
