  • Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Stockholm University
    Stockholm, Sweden
    PhD student in Inorganic Chemistry
    Announcement date: 26 March 2019

    [show details]

    Description

    The aim of this PhD project is to develop 3D ePDF for studying structurally disorder in materials using transmission electron microscopes. By such analysis it is possible to reveal more structural information than the average structure of crystalline materials, e.g.local structural variations and defects. The systematic routines for collecting and processing the electron-scattered data will be developed. This technique will also be used to analyse disorder in some selected functional materials, such as in nanoparticles, glassy materials and functional ceramics, and how the disorder relates to the properties of interest. The project means multidisciplinary research involving experimental as well as theoretical work that are of interest not only from a fundamental scientific point of view but where the accumulated knowledge also will be of great technological importance.

    Requirements

    Applicants should hold a Master degree in science or engineering or equivalent qualification.
