    PhD position for In situ Microscopy & Nanomechanics of Flexible Nanowire Electrodes
    Announcement date: 22 March 2021 - Deadline for application: 15 May 2021

    [show details]

    Description

    Flexible transparent electrodes have seen an increasing demand in applications ranging from flexible organic solar cells and light emitting diodes to touch panels and smart clothing. The electrode must withstand mechanical loading without sacrificing electrical and optical performance. Nanowire networks are highly promising candidates, as they combine mechanical flexibility with low sheet resistance and high optical transmittance. Moreover, such nanowire electrodes can be fabricated by low-cost solution processes. At IMN (www.em.tf.fau.de) we investigate the fundamental deformation and failure modes of individual nanowires as well as nanowire electrodes by combining in situ and ex situ mechanical testing in light microscopy, SEM and TEM. We directly correlate mechanical and electrical performance of nanowire networks to identify detrimental failure modes and to develop coating strategies for enhanced flexibility. The in situ microscopy studies are carried out within the framework of the Research Training Group GRK 1896 “In situ microscopy with electrons, X-rays and scanning probes” (www.grk1896.fau.de). Our collaboration partners in the GRK 1896 provide outstanding expertises in atomistic simulations and organic solar cells, which enable us to gain insight into the fundamental defect mechanisms on the one hand and to relate our microscopic studies to applications on the other hand.

    Requirements

    In order to advance our understanding of flexible nanowire electrodes and their mechanical/electrical performance, we are seeking a highly motivated PhD student for advanced in situ micro- and nanomechnical studies. The applicants should have a master’s degree in materials science, physics chemistry, or a related discipline. Applicants with a background in either electron microscopy or nano- and micromechanics are particularly encouraged to apply.

    PhD position for Advanced Electron Microscopy of Next Generation Solar Cells
    Announcement date: 22 March 2021 - Deadline for application: 15 May 2021

    [show details]

    Description

    Structural information down to molecular level and their evolution as function of processing conditions are indispensable to develop knowledge-driven design of devices and processing routines for next generation solar cells. Cutting-edge and beam dose managed transmission electron microscopy techniques have enabled imaging the chemical composition (via analytical methods) and molecular crystal structure (by high resolution and diffraction methods) at nanometre and atomic scale thus providing insights into the time evolution of the compositions in active layers. Thus, the structure- property relationship of next generation solar cells can be elucidated, leading to a better understanding and improvement of the device performance.

    Requirements

    To further strengthen our activities in this field, we are seeking a highly motivated PhD student for advanced TEM investigations of next generation solar cells. The applicants should have a master’s degree in materials science, chemistry, physics or a related discipline. Applicants with a background in OPV research and the willingness to learn the abovementioned microscopy techniques are encouraged to apply.
