The Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz-IPHT) offers the following position (50%) in the Research Group “Silicon Nanostructures”starting April 1st, 2021
PhD candidate (f/m/d)
The position is limited for 3 years.
The Leibniz-IPHT is a university independent research institute with close connection to the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena and member of the Leibniz association.
The main research focuses on the formation and characterization of plasmonic active Sn/SnOx on nanostructured silicon surfaces for the biophotonics application. The candidate will be integrated to the research group of Dr. Vladimir Sivakov in frame of bilateral German-Russian project funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG). The employee will be responsible for the pre-patterning of silicon surfaces for further intersection with functional tin oxide layers. For the formation of the tin-based plasmonic active nanostructures metalorganic chemical vapor deposition using tin (II) and tin (IV) volatile alkoxide precursors will be applied. The characterization of plasmonic structures will be performed by surface analytic methods like SEM, EDX, EBSD, TEM, etc., which will be combined with theoretically modeling growth processes and plasmonic properties. A precise and detailed analysis of the atomic and electronic structure as well as the physico-chemical state of the formed surfaces and interfaces will be achieved by using large-scale facilities at BESSY II synchrotron storage ring at HZB Berlin and Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS) storage ring at National Research Center «Kurchatov Institute» (NRC KI). The candidate is expected to have already some hand-on experience in the tin-precursor synthesis and thin film technology and surface analytics. The candidate is expected to work independently and actively participate in the joint bilateral activities (travelling to: synchrotron storage rings in Berlin, Moscow, Voronezh; project meetings, workshops, conferences worldwide), the preparation of reports, scientific papers, presentations, and related proposals for further research funds.
