Technische Universität Berlin - Faculty II - Institute of Optics and Atomic Physics/ Nonlinear Optics of Nanostructures
Research Assistant - salary grade 13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen - 1st qualification period (PhD)
under the reserve that funds are granted - part-time employment may be possible
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.
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.
