    PhD student position
    Announcement date: 08 June 2018

    [show details]

    Description

    A Phd position is available in the Interfaces / SIOM team , based at the University of Burgundy, Dijon (France) . The aim of the project is to elaborate columnar thin films by GLAD (Glancing Angle Deposition) magnetron co - sputtering based on tungsten and copper. These metals are chosen because of the immiscibility character of the W/Cu binary system. W and Cu atoms actually prefer to form single element domains, which should favor well - defined interfaces between W and Cu phases in an oriented or normal GLAD columnar structure.

    Requirements

    The successful candidate will have a recent European master. This thesis being mainly experimental, knowledge in growth techniques and/or transmission electron microscopy are valuable. Good level in French and/or English are mand atory.
