Paul-Drude-Institut für Festkörperelektronik Leibniz-Institut im Forschungsverbund Berlin e. V.
The Paul Drude Institute (PDI) performs basic research as a lively symbiosis of materials science and solid state physics. Our research aims at inspiring and demonstrating new functionalities for future information technologies. As a member of the Leibniz-Gemeinschaft and Forschungsverbund Berlin e. V., we are an independent research institute with about 100 employees and collaborate with all three universities in Berlin. We are located in the very heart of the city near Gendarmenmarkt.

for Cathodoluminescence Spectroscopy of Core/Shell Nanowires
The Paul-Drude-Institute has a long-standing expertise in cathodolumines-cence spectroscopy (CL) of group III-V semiconductor nanostructures carried out in a scanning electron microscope (SEM). These measurements of the emission properties can be directly correlated to measurements of the crystal structure by electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and of the properties of a p-n junction by electron beam induced current (EBIC), both in the same SEM. Within a project funded by the Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF), we are currently developing nano-lasers based on GaAs/(In,Ga)As core/shell nanowire structures for the direct integration on Si waveguides. In this context, it is important to achieve a detailed understanding of their emission properties and of the influence of the choice of composition, dimensions, doping, and crystal structure on their optical properties. In addition, the performance of fully processed nano-lasers will also be investigated. The Ph.D. candidate is expected to carry out CL, EBSD, and EBIC measurements on GaAs/(In,Ga)As core/shell nanowires.
We invite applications from experimental solid state physicists with a competitive master degree in physics. Experience with scanning electron microscopy, luminescence spectroscopy and/or working with semiconductor nanowires is advantageous. We are looking for a colleague who enjoys working in a highly motivated team of research and technical staff.
What we offer:
The position is available for up to 3 years starting June 1st, 2019. Payment is according to TVöD (Treaty for German public service). The Paul Drude Institute aims at increasing the quota of female employees. The application of women is therefore encouraged. Among equally qualified applicants, preference will be given to disabled candidates.
How to apply:
Applications should be sent by May 15th, 2019, with the reference PhD-CL to:
