The researcher will join the EPIPHY group (Epitaxy and Physics of heterostructures) at the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology in Villeneuve d'Ascq (IEMN, https://www.iemn.fr/). The mission will consist in the growth and characterization of 2D materials and their heterostructures, amongst them hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), within the Flag-Era 2019 project 2DHetero.
The main goal of the project is to develop the growth of 2D materials and heterostructures (hBN, graphene), the target being to use them for electronic devices. This is an experimental work, carried out mainly in a clean room environment. The successful candidate will also be involved in characterizing the physical and structural properties of the materials thus obtained, using various analysis techniques well suited to materials only a few atomic layer thick such as photoemission or Raman spectroscopies, scanning electronic or atomic force microscopies...
Having defended a doctoral thesis is mandatory, the specialty being either material or condensed matter physics, micro-nanotechnology or a similar domain. A significant experience in materials growth using techniques such as molecular beam epitaxy or chemical vapour deposition will be particularly appreciated. A good knowledge of the previously mentioned characterization techniques and/or experience with cleanroom technology processes are also a plus. A good command of English, both written and spoken, is essential, as well as the ability to work in a team.
The IEMN EPIPHY group activity (https://www.iemn.fr/la-recherche/les-groupes/epiphy) is focused in the epitaxial growth of III-V semiconductors and 2D materials (graphene...). We strongly collaborate with colleagues in the IEMN CARBON group regarding the making of devices from our 2D materials and heterostructures. This work is part of the Flag-Era 2DHetero project, the consortium gathering the Leibniz Insitute für innovative Mikroelectronik (IHP, Frankfurt/Oder, Allemagne), the University of Namur (Belgium) and IEMN.
