Offer Description

Description of Group/Project: The “Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems” group at ICN2 studies ultrafast phenomena in materials with small dimensions. We use home-built, state-of-the art optical and optoelectronic setups with high temporal and spatial resolution and broad wavelength tunability. Our aim is to gain an increased understanding of the ultrafast microscopic processes related to heat and charge, and exploit this towards photonic and optoelectronic applications. In this project, you will be working on photocurrent microscopy of quantum materials for both fundamental understanding as well as technology development. 

 

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

You will be performing photocurrent microscopy measurements in the time domain and frequency domain with different wavelengths of light using unique setups with ultrahigh temporal and spatial resolution.

You will develop novel understanding of quantum materials and how they can be epxploited towards optoelectronic applications.

This position is linked to the Flag-ERA project ENPHOCAL, which is a collaboration between IMEC (Belgium), Ghent University (Belgium), Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (Germany) and ICN2 (Spain), where the UDNS group is the coordinator of this project.
