Technische Universität Berlin - Faculty II - Institute of Optics and Atomic Physics/ Nonlinear Optics of Nanostructures
Research Assistant - 0.75 working time - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen - 1st qualification period (PhD candidate)
At the Institute of Optics and Atomic Physics of TU Berlin the research group Nonlinear Optics of Nanostructures (Prof. Woggon) the opto-electronic properties of nanoscopic materials and functional structures.
The project is related to the optical and electronic properties of CdSe nanoplatelets and related 2D materials. These two dimensional semiconductors exhibit unique, new material properties, and are ideally suited to investigate basic aspects of 2D systems. The project aims to investigate their properties, e.g. coherence and exciton-phonon interaction, as well as their systematic modification, e.g. by hetero structure formation or external fields.
Embedded in a main research line of the work group on 2D materials it is planned to investigate the optical and electronic properties of semiconductor nanoplatelets and further 2D systems. The therefore applied methods include photoluminescence, ultrafast pump-probe and two photon spectroscopy. In close cooperation with internationally renowned research groups from synthesis and theory as partners, the experimental findings shall then be modeled. Support of teaching at the chair of Nonlinear Optics.
Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in physics or physical chemistry; an above average completion of an experimental/theoretical diplom/master thesis desired. Experience in at least one of the areas nanosystems, semiconductor physics, ultrafast physics/spectroscopy or (nonlinear) optics is desirable. Programming experience and solid knowledge of English is of advantage for working on experimental questions and modelling.
