The objective is to develop micro-machined MEMS / NEMS sensors, taking advantage of clean room technologies, to conduct nano-mechanics and hydrodynamics studies at very low temperature.
Different types of miniature sensors are currently being considered. For example, one type consists in measuring the deflection of a micro-object (fiber, membrane, etc.) positoned across a flow, while another type is presented as a vibrating nano-wire.
The mission entrusted is to:
- Carry out a comparative study of the solutions envisaged.
- Develop prototypes in a clean room, characterize them to optimize their manufacturing
- Participate in the implementation of sensors, signal analysis and the writing of scientific articles.
The project is part of the European EMP project (https://emplatform.eu/). In this context, the recruit will be able to participate in tests of a few weeks in one of the infrastructures of this European network, probably in England.
Practical experience is expected in micro / nano clean room technologies: design of lithography masks, deposition, etching, electron microscopy ...
A PhD in experimental sciences (Physics, Fluid Mechanics, Nano / Micro, etc.), preferably with an instrumentation part.
Compliance with ethical requirements are expected.
The research group has a long experience in the development of sensors based on micro-technologies, including for cryogenic flows (http://hydro.cnrs.me and http://neel.cnrs.fr/spip.php?rubrique929). It benefits from infrastructures for this kind of development: clean rooms (http://neel.cnrs.fr/spip.php?rubrique667, PTA), characterization devices, wind tunnels…
The Institut NEEL (http://neel.cnrs.fr) is a CNRS laboratory for fundamental research in condensed matter physics, in association with the University of Grenoble-Alpes. About 450 people work there. The laboratory is located in Grenoble, in a very rich international scientific environment, in the heart of the Alps.
Constraints and risks
A few short trips to England (typically 1 week) are likely.
