Contextual elements related to the funding:
The proposed post doc subject is part of the ANR project NANOPLAST (NANOcomposite PLAsma Coatings for concentrated Solar energy Thermal conversion) which aims to develop multifunctional solutions integrating nanocomposite thin film materials, for the conversion of concentrated solar thermal energy (CSP) into electricity. This project aims to implement and integrate nanocomposite materials, in order to provide an understanding of the complete chain, from synthesis to performance evaluation. Emphasis will be put on the study of the sensitivity of films and stacks to temperature and/or illumination aging in order to identify degradation phenomena.
Taking in charge the IMN experimental part of the ANR NANOPLAST project on the electron microscopy and XPS spectroscopy aspects.
Carrying out the structural, physicochemical and optical characterizations of nanocomposite multilayer stacked films (based on SiC/metal, TaON) and interfaces.
Interpreting the experimental results and highlighting these results in relationship to the literature.
Writing scientific papers and communicate results in conferences (posters and oral communications). Producing progress reports.
The person recruited will be in charge of the structural characterization by FIB/SEM/TEM electron microscopy and chemical bonding by photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS in and ex situ) of thin films elaborated by the partner laboratories PROMES and ICCF.
In addition, ellipsometry (UV-Vis) coupled with models dedicated to the cross-study of optical/structural properties on nanocomposites will be implemented.
PhD in the field of material science (physics and chemistry) characterization of materials, nanomaterials and thin films, transmission electron microscopy.
Experience and interest in experimental work,
Initiative and rigor,
Good command of written and spoken English. Ability to communicate and promote research (participation in conferences, poster presentations, oral presentations, writing of scientific articles).
Ability to work in a team and in project mode.
The recruited post-doc fellow will be located at the Institut Jean ROUXEL, IMN in Nantes, which currently brings together more than 130 researchers (chemists, physicists, materials engineers from the CNRS and the University of Nantes), administrative and technical staff, and 90 contractual research staff. Through the design and characterization of new materials, the laboratory's approach leads to the optimization of a wide range of properties for targeted applications.
