PhD Position on Spectroscopy of 2D Materials for X-ray Photonics in Dübendorf

EMPA (European Master of Public Administration Consortium) is a network of European schools, that offer master programs in public administration.


The excitation of 2D materials, in which the lattice parameter is resonant to the fluorescence may lead to distributed feedback and thus to superradiance. This research aims exploring an original approach towards the demonstration of a compact X-ray laser.

Your responsibilities
You investigate crystals of tuned stoichiometries as X-ray resonators. The atomic spacing and structure are matched to the wavelength of fluorescence. Different techniques of preparation are compared such as pulsed laser deposition and magnetron sputtering. You will test the optical performance of these materials pumping their fluorescence by means of electrons and/or photon sources. Teaching assignments at the University are part of the doctoral position. The research is carried out at the Empa while the PhD thesis is presented at the University of Zurich.
Your profile
You completed a MSc in materials science or solid state chemistry. You are familiar with deposition techniques and the basics of spectroscopy, atom physics and physical chemistry. You can use software for data processing, such as Igor Pro, Matlab and Origin.

We offer an exciting position in a top-class research institution and infrastructure in an interdisciplinary environment with modern working conditions. You will have the opportunity to develop in a research field that receives great attention in science and society. The starting date of this PhD position is March 2022 or by agreement.
