Thermoelectric properties are weakly developed at the nanoscale compared to other fields like molecular (opto-)electronics or spintronics. The capacity to convert temperature gradient in electric current, or reversely, to cool a system by applying an electrical current is nevertheless essential to control the energy flux in nano-devices. To achieve this, a sizable power conversion efficiency should be reached together with remote control functionalities. The project aims at contributing to this major issue by providing novel innovative nano-devices based on organometallic wires designed to generate efficient and switchable thermoelectric ability using a combined modelling-experimental strategy. The effort will be driven in particular to obtain quantum interferences in the conductance and tunability of the thermoelectric properties by application of electric potential or by light irradiation.
Experimental physics (electrical scanning probe microscope).
The post-doc will contribute to the electrical and thermal characterizations
at the nanoscale (C-AFM, SThM, NMJs). This person must be a physicist with backgrounds in
SPM characterization and/or electrical measurements and/or physico-chemical characterization.
hired by IEMN will do scientific stays at partner labs to participate to the research effort on MCBJs
