In the framework of OPTYMAL (Operando and in-situ specTroscopies for renewable energy MateriaLs) ANR, we plan to combine different experimental spectroscopies with ab initio calculations in order to improve the molecular understanding of materials interfaces. Among materials of interest, one can mention iron oxides, well-known for solar energy conversion. During the OPTYMAL project, SPEC group from CEA Saclay will synthetize maghemite (ɣ-Fe2O3) either pure or Ni-doped by epitaxial growth on a platinum substrate. These samples will be analyzed by several spectroscopic techniques.
In consistency with these experiments, the aim of this post-doc will be to theoretically investigate the epitaxial growth of Ni-doped maghemite on platinum, by comparison with pure maghemite. After a first part dedicated to structural and electronical analysis of the materials, the influence of the environment, more particularly the presence of water will be considered.
The recruited candidate will have to :
- do a comprehensive bibliography of the state of art
- perform suitable calculations
- analyze results
- write papers on obtained results
The candidate must have a good background in solid-state chemistry and quantum chemistry. A good knowledge of oxide modelling would be an advantage. Knowledge of VASP is required.
This position will be in the framework of the OPTYMAL ANR in collaboration with CEA Saclay and synchrotron SOLEIL
Constraints and risks
The candidate will be located in a ZRR laboratory
