    Announcement date: 22 March 2017

    [show details]

    Description

    A postdoctoral position is available in the 3D Visualization Group of the Materials Science Division (MSD), which aims to understand the novel and emergent behavior in nanoscale magnetic, ferroelectric and resistive switching structures. In particular we seek to understand how the local energy landscape in the nanostructures controls domain behavior and transportbehavior, and how it is influenced by geometric patterning or confinement and through interfacial interactions. The specific research project involves the use of advanced Lorentz transmission electron microscopy (LTEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) to carry out quantitative analysis of the domain behavior of nanoscale ferromagnetic heterostructures, in particular using in-situ experiments to explore the reponse to magnetic and electric fields and to, temperature variation. Correlating this with microstructure/composition will enable the local energy landscape of the nanostructures to be determined. The post-holder will also be responsible for fabrication of suitable TEM/AFM samples using focused ion-beam systems or electron beam lithography. Some amount of modeling and simulation work will also be required.

    Requirements

    Considerable experience in analysis of thin film and/or nanostructured materials using advanced TEM, LTEM and AFM techniques.

    Strong background in Materials Science or Physics.

    Min. Education: Ph.D (< 3 yrs since Ph.D)
    Familiarity with image processing and simulation software.
    (Preferred) Experience with nanofabrication, magnetic domain imaging, transport measurement, thin film deposition.
