CRISMAT (https://crismat.cnrs.fr) is a partner of the international ANR APERIODIC, which concerns the study of the atomic structure, dynamic and electronic properties of aperiodic crystals. The main objective of this project concerns the impact of aperiodicity and complexity, structural or magnetic, on physical properties (mainly thermal, electronic and magnetic properties). The candidate will work on materials already selected where aperiodicity has a different origin: natural aperiodic material, aperiodicity resulting from coupled electronic / lattice instability (charge density waves), non-collinear magnetism. At the same time, other promising systems, possibly proposed by the candidate, could be explored and synthesized.
-To prepare small crystals to measure them, to perform electronic / magnetic / dielectric / thermal measurements in cryostats under magnetic field.
-To analyze and propose an interpretation of the results, in relation to their chemical-structural particularities.
-To interact with PHd students
- To propose and explore new materials (sample growth)
- Great expertise in transport / magnetic / dielectric / thermal measurements on small crystals.
-Good knowledge in crystallography and structural analysis (nuclear or magnetic)
- Ability to work in a multidisciplinary environment (with chemists, crystallographers, physicists ...)
- Motivation and good human contact will be essential points for recruitment.
CRISMAT is a multidisciplinary materials science laboratory, whose main focus is the study of new functional materials. It has a large number of facilities for growing crystals and studying their structures (TEM, X-ray diffractometer). The candidate will work in the "crystallography and physics of matter" group (https://crismat.cnrs.fr/cristallographie-et-physique-de-la-matiere/). For measurements, a very wide and regular access to different measurement platforms will be given (SQUID magnetometers, VSM; implementation of dielectric, pyroelectric and polarization measurements in PPMS (2-400K, 0-14T), electronic transport measurements and noise…). The project partners are also experts in diffuse and inelastic x-ray scattering, and collaboration with them on large instruments is very likely. The project is also taking place within the framework of an international research network of CNRS between France / Germany and Japan called “The CRISMAT is a multidisciplinary material science laboratory working on functional new materials.

For the measurements, a regular access to different technical platform is given (SQUID magnetometers, VSM; dielectric, pyroelectric and polarization measurement set-up in PPMS (2-400K, 0-14T), electronic transport and noise measurements…) Partners of the project are also expert in diffuse and inelastic X-ray scattering, and collaboration with them on large scale facilities is very likely. The project also takes place in an international research network of the CNRS between France / Germany and Japan called “Open space between aperiodic order and physics & chemistry of materials”. The candidate will participate actively in this network.
