A bit more than 10 years after its discovery, Graphene seriously challenges GaAs-based electrical resistance standards because it has a very robust quantum Hall effect. This is very promising in view of the future redefinition of the SI units. The postdoctoral researcher will be fully integrated in an ongoing research project, which aims to develop graphene-based electrical standards working at very low magnetic fields.
-The researcher will identify the main mechanisms which still limit the robustness of the QHE in graphene Hall bars. The researcherwill use samples already available in the L2C team.
-He will also realize his own devices in the clean room with graphene that the team will provide.
-The post-doctoral researcher will mainly measure the electronic properties of the devices in the QHE regime. He will be in charge of a versatile experimental platform for electrical measurements, dedicated to fast but precise electrical analysis from room temperature down to liquid helium temperature and below, in the presence of intense quantizing magnetic fields.
-Applicants must hold a high quality Ph.D. in Condensed Matter Physics, Materials Science or Nanoscience.
-The successful candidate should be highly motivated and able to initiate independent research as well as to work in a team setting. He should have a solid experience in graphene or 2D materials, in micro-fabrication and/or electrical measurements.
-Additional experience in Optical and Raman spectroscopy would be beneficial. English fluency is highly desired.
The Laboratoire Charles Coulomb (L2C), Montpellier, France, belongs to the “Institut de Physique (INP)” as main institute and to the “Institut de Chimie (INC)”, as a secondary Institute. The L2C gathers more than a hundred researchers in Physics, nearly 50 technical and administrative staff members, and about 80 other personnel (emeriti, PhD students, post-doctoral researchers,…) The L2C covers a wide range of fields, from the most mathematical theoretical Physics to Chemical Physics and Biophysics, with a solid background of theoretical and experimental research devoted to Condensed Matter and Nanosciences. The investigations performed at the L2C are often at the interface with Chemistry, Life Sciences and Electronics.
