    Postdoctoral and PhD positions in "precise structure characterisation using fast pixelated detectors for scanning transmission electron microscopy "
    Announcement date: 08 February 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    These vacancies are situated in an H2020 ERC Consolidator grant Picometer metrology for light-element nanostructures: making every electron count (PICOMETRICS). The overarching goal of PICOMETRICS is to usher transmission electron microscopy in a new era of non-destructive picometer metrology. Novel data-driven methods will be combined with the latest experimental capabilities to study nanostructures from single low-dose recordings using fast pixelated detectors for scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM). The required electron dose is envisaged to be four orders of magnitude lower than what is nowadays used. In this manner, beam damage will be drastically reduced or even be ruled out completely. This will enable precise characterisation of nanostructures in their native state; a prerequisite for understanding their properties. 

    • Depending on your interest, the successful candidate will work on (i) the design and optimization of experiments with a focus on how to reduce the required electron dose, (ii) deep learning in 4D STEM using neural networks and maximum likelihood estimation for precise positioning of atoms in 3D, (iii) chemical and oxidation state mapping or (iv) 3D structure analysis from time series data to track changes over time.
    • The PhD candidates prepare a doctoral thesis in the field of sciences.
    • The postdoctoral researcher has the opportunity to supervise student projects.
    • You publish scientific articles related to the research project of the assignment.

    PhD student: Momentum-resolved Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy of ultrathin alloyed metal nanowires
    Announcement date: 06 February 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    Job reference: D024/2018, Physics

    A quantitative understanding of relativistic low-angle electron scattering by comparing experimental and simulated momentum-resolved STEM signals is to be achieved. In particular, current approaches for simulating the angular distribution are inherently based on elastic scattering whereas strong hints exist that inelastic interactions, e.g., plasmonic excitations, cause a yet unexplored energy dependence of the scattered intensity. Developing, testing and implementing theoretical approaches to close this gap is a fundamental step to be accomplished with national and international partners working on scattering theory. This knowledge together with the acquisition of cutting-edge experimental data then provides the basis for the compositional quantification of alloyed Gold nanowires. This will shed light on their phase stability, for example the formation of core-shell structures after post-synthesis thermal treatment. The vivid cooperations between the ER-C as a user facility and national/international university partners working in the fields materials, chemical and biological science allow for the application of the developed approach to many topics at the frontiers of electron microscopy research.

    Requirements

    The successful candidate should have a master degree in physics. A background and strong interest in scattering theory, and/or experiences in electron microscopy are desirable, as well as programming experiences in, e.g., Matlab. Both your written and spoken English should be very good. Most importantly, you explore uncharted territory with enthusiasm, develop and follow your own ideas and work autonomously in close interaction within a team.

    PhD student: Polarisation mapping in ferroelectric nanostructures by momentum-resolved Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy
    Announcement date: 06 February 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    Job reference: D023/2018, Physics

    A momentum-resolved STEM method is to be developed to directly measure ferroelectric polarisation fields in perovskite structures (BaTiO3, Pb(ZrTi)O3) provided by national and international university partners. In particular, the long-range variations of the rather weak ferro­electric polarisation must be disentangled from dynamical electron scattering and the much stronger atomic electric fields. Using the advanced electron microscopy infrastructure at the ER-C, the results are to be cross-checked by structural characterisations, involving the measurement of picometre-range atomic displacements. Besides the experimental work, this project involves accompanying simulation studies and the preparation of an in-depth theoretical understanding of ferroelectricity. Enabling polarisation mapping by momentum-resolved STEM does not only enhance electron microscopy methodology drastically, it especially provides new possibilities in contemporary materials science and nanotechnology. These include in-situ biasing experiments to observe polarisation switching and/or the mapping of polarisations in advanced ferroelectric nanostructures.

    Requirements

    The successful candidate should have a master degree in physics. A background and strong interest in solid-state theory, and/or experiences in electron microscopy are desirable, together with programming experience in, e.g., Matlab. Both your written and spoken English should be very good. Most importantly, you explore uncharted territory with enthusiasm, develop and follow your own ideas and work autonomously in close interaction within a team.
