  • Utrecht University
    Utrecht, Netherlands
    PhD position on gas/liquid-phase in-situ TEM for studying catalyst preparation
    Announcement date: 09 August 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    Heterogeneous metal catalysts are of tremendous importance to chemical industry. Activity, selectivity and stability of catalysts during chemical reactions is largely determined by the size, location and composition of catalytically active metal nanoparticles typically supported on metal oxides such as silica, alumina or titania. Within the framework of ARC-CBBC consortium (http://www.arc-cbbc.nl/), this project aims to deepen the fundamental understanding of the preparation of supported bimetallic catalysts. Advanced transmission electron microscopy (TEM) techniques will be used, amongst others in situ liquid and gas-phase TEM to study in real time the stages of catalyst preparation with nanometer scale resolution. The supported bimetallic catalysts will be studied with several advanced analytical tools available within the consortium. Hydrogenation catalysis is the envisaged application of the prepared materials. 

    Requirements

    We are looking for an enthusiastic, motivated and skilled student holding an MSc in a relevant area of Chemistry, Materials Science or Chemical Engineering. The candidate preferably has some experience with catalysis, catalyst synthesis and/or electron microscopy.

  • University of Geneva – Triscone Lab, DQMP / EPFL – LSME, IPHYS
    Lake Geneva region, Switzerland
    Postdoctoral position in atomic structure analyses of oxide interfaces and multilayers
    Announcement date: 27 July 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    The Triscone Group at the DQMP, University of Geneva and the Electron Spectrometry and Microscopy Laboratory (LSME) at the EPFL have an opening for a postdoctoral researcher on atomic structure imaging and analyses of perovskite thin film interfaces and heterostructures. The two-year position is part of the SNSF funded project “Structural and electronic properties of oxide structures and oxide interfaces,” which seeks to study effects of manipulating atomic structure and composition on oxide physical properties such as metal-insulator transitions and ferromagnetism. To this end, the researcher will perform vital aberration-corrected transmission electron microscopy studies on the films in order to probe the atomic lattices that are created. He/she will work in close collaboration with both labs, in a project which unites the expertise in thin film deposition, structural control and physical properties of the Triscone Group with the high-level capabilities for (S)TEM imaging and analytics at EPFL/LSME. Of particular interest is the precise measurement of local structural distortions across epitaxial interfaces and associated effects on electronic structure. The researcher will use the monochromated, double-Cs corrected FEI Titan Themis 60-300 that is installed at CIME, EPFL, with proven <0.7 Å resolution, high stability, and EELS and EDXS analytics. As well as TEM instrumentation, the project is supported by full access to TEM specimen preparation by mechanical and ion beam polishing and focused ion beam milling.

    Requirements

    - PhD in solid state physics or materials science
    - Strong hands-on experience of aberration-corrected (S)TEM imaging
    - Additional skills of: TEM specimen preparation; analysis and simulation of atomic resolution STEM images; electron energy-loss spectroscopy (EELS) are also of benefit.

    PhD student: Polarisation mapping in ferroelectric nanostructures by momentum-resolved Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy
    Announcement date: 27 July 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    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.

    Please address your electronic (PDF) applicationincluding curriculum vitae, a description of research background and interests, and a copy of relevant certificates to Dr. Knut Müller-Caspary

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.

    PhD student: Momentum-resolved Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy of ultrathin alloyed metal nanowires
    Announcement date: 27 July 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    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.
