At the Insti­tute of Optics and Atomic Phys­ics of TU Ber­lin the research group Non­lin­ear Optics of Nano­struc­tures (Prof. Wog­gon) invest­ig­ates the lin­ear and non-lin­ear prop­er­ties of nano­scopic mater­i­als and func­tional struc­tures. The pro­ject is related to the optical prop­er­ties of the new mater­ial class of CdSe nano­plate­lets and sim­ilar 2D mater­i­als. These two dimen­sional plate­lets made of Cad­mi­umsel­en­ide or com­par­able mater­i­als exhibit unique, new mater­ial prop­er­ties as freest­and­ing, col­loidal quan­tum­wells. In the frame­work of this pro­ject the influ­ence of strain and external fields as well as phon­ons on their prop­er­ties shall be invest­ig­ated.

Work­ing field:

Based on the exper­i­ence with CdSe plate­lets in our group the optical and elec­tronic prop­er­ties of these 2D plate­lets shall be invest­ig­ate sys­tem­at­ic­ally. For this exist­ing spec­tro­scopy setups for lumin­es­cence, two-photon, Raman and pump-probe shall be used, fur­ther expan­ded or set up. In close cooper­a­tion with inter­na­tion­ally renowned research groups the exper­i­mental find­ings shall be modeled. In this frame your field of work will include both exper­i­mental and the­or­et­ical aspects in the areas men­tioned above. Interest in teach­ing within prac­tical courses of the Insti­tute of Phys­ics is appre­ci­ated.


Suc­cess­fully com­pleted uni­versity degree (Mas­ter, Dip­lom or equi­val­ent) in phys­ics or phys­ical chem­istry; an above aver­age com­ple­tion of an exper­i­mental/the­or­et­ical dip­lom/mas­ter thesis desired; exper­i­ence in at least one of the areas nano­clusters/quan­tum­dots, semi­con­ductor phys­ics, ultra­fast phys­ics and non­lin­ear optics is desir­able. Fur­ther interest in work­ing on both exper­i­mental and the­or­et­ical ques­tions is expec­ted. Pro­gram­ming exper­i­ence and solid know­ledge of Eng­lish is of advant­age. The abil­ity to work self-respons­ible together with col­lab­or­a­tion part­ners and team mem­bers is highly desir­able.

How to ap­ply:

Please address your writ­ten applic­a­tion together with the ref­er­ence num­ber, CV and cer­ti­fic­ates includ­ing a grade list as well as the con­tact inform­a­tion of two ref­er­ences to: Tech­nis­che Uni­versität Ber­lin - Der Präsid­ent - Fak­ultät II, Insti­tut für Optik und Ato­mare Physik, AG Nicht­lineare Optik an Nano­met­erstruk­turen, Frau Prof. Dr. Wog­gon, Sekr.
