Charge transfer processes, ubiquitous in nature because they govern a large number of photo-, physico- chemical events, are still poorly understood. It seems particularly judicious to access information at the molecular and atomic scale to better understand and describe new aspects of these processes (adiabatic transfers, coherent/resonant tunnel, superexchange, etc ...). Ultra-low temperature tunneling microscopy is an ideal tool for this type of study [see Nanoscale, 2018, 10, 17603]. By combining it with luminescence collection techniques it will be possible to access different information of the molecular dynamics while keeping an ad-hoc spatial resolution.
The postdoctoral researcher will be part of the molecular nanoscale devices axis at the Institute of Molecular Nanosciences (ISMO) in Orsay. He/she will work within the framework of the CHACRA project, recently funded by the ANR, which aims to study the fundamental processes of charge transfer in small molecular assemblies by local probe microscopy.
- Implication in the preparation of STM experiments (STM tips, samples, deposits ...), management of cryogenics.
- Implication in statistical measurements of electronic excitations, characterization of molecular devices (STS, AFM, dI/dV mapping).
- Implication in luminescence collection measurements.
- Implication in data analysis and writing of scientific articles.
- Implication, participation in numerical simulations.
- Implication in seminars, workshops, conferences.
- Implication in Co-supervision of PhD students
The ideal candidate will satisfy the following criteria and skills:
- A doctorate in physics,
- A confirmed experimental know-how in tunneling microscopy (STM in UHV) with, ideally, experience in the use of STM/AFM at low temperature.
- Solid knowledge in surface physics, physico-chemistry of molecular systems.
- Autonomy, rigor, dynamism
The position is opened as part of a collaborative project funded by the National Research Agency (ANR). The project involves 4 research partners (ISMO, ICMMO, IS2M and FEMTO-ST) bringing together expertise in surface physics and nanoscience, chemical synthesis and numerical simulation (DFT). The project will take place at ISMO in a new building bringing together many researchers and research professors (http://www.ismo.u- psud.fr/spip.php?article760).
