At the IEMN laboratory (UMR 7325), located in Villeneuve-d-Ascq, the candidate will be in charge of experimental work on organic solar cells. This project will be carried out within the five groups of the IEMN laboratory. These groups have a great know-how in the realization and the characterization of components for opto-electronics.
The main tasks that will be carried out within the project include:
• Synthesis of metallic and core-shell nanoparticles
• Fabrication of the polyimide-integrated graphene electrodes
• Fabrication and optimization of organic solar cells based on multicomponent blends
• Characterization of the stability of materials
• Optimization of ternary mixtures to improve thermal stability
• Material screening and data analysis using statistical and Machine learning algorithms
We are looking for a creative and motivated candidate, who enjoys being part of a team. The fellow should hold a Master degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science or Nanoscience, related engineering disciplines, and hold a recognized Ph.D degree (or equivalent). The candidate should have excellent teamwork skills, initiative, analytical skills and autonomy. Some experience in chemicals synthesis and/or numerical simulation/Machine Learning would be an added value
The study is carried out within the framework of a project awarded by the Laboratory's Internal Call for Projects. The project aims at fabricating printed, stable, and high-efficiency ternary plasmonic OSCs with polyimide-integrated graphene electrode devices by studying the plasmonic effect on optoelectronic properties using realistic simulations coupled with Machine Learning and experimental approaches.
