Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 01 Jun 2021

The ESR will design multidimensional metal halide perovskites and process these into thin films using vapour deposition techniques. The deposited films will be analysed on structural, morphological, optical properties employing techniques such as optical spectroscopy, XRD, AFM and SEM. The perovskite based devices will be used to develop highly luminescent diodes. Performance will be optimized through characterization of these diodes combined with optical modelling. Secondments are foreseen at project partners institutions in Europe and Asia.

The European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network PERSEPHONe brings together 8 academic institutions, 3 SMEs, and 1 multinational company from five EU and 1 EU-13 Countries, and supported by 9 partners. PERSEPHONe’s overall objective is to generate new skills, knowledge and innovation for the development of a novel technological platform for photonics based on metal-halide perovskite semiconductors. This will happen by giving 14 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) exposure to a wide spectrum of expertise: materials synthesis, photonic (and optoelectronic) devices and integrated circuits fabrication, characterization, and modelling, upscaling and manufacturing together with a powerful set of soft skills. Crucial for the success of such Programme is the multidisciplinarity and intersectoriality of the network, which will allow the young researcher to genuinely discover and/or feed her/his attitude while having an impact on a relevant scientific and technological field. The entire Network has also the mission of disseminate to various audience (scientific community, young people, stakeholders, etc.) the scientific and technological achievements.

PERSEPHONe Partners are the following: Fondazione Istituto italiano Di Tecnologia (IT), Politecnico di Milano (IT), University of Naples Federico II (IT), Linkoping University (SE), University of Valencia, (ES), Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Cientific (ES), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (CH), University of Oxofrd (UK), AMO GmbH (DE), Dectris (CH) and Helio Display Materials Ltd (UK).

During the programme each ESR will undertake 2-3 secondments, each lasting 2 months or more. At least one of the secondments will be with an industrial partner.
