    Contract Period3 Years
    Starting dateSep 01, 2021

    Qualifications

    A two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) In Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry, Electrical Engineering or similar

    Preference

    • A strong background in applied physics/materials science
    • A strong background in thin film technologies, especially PLD and sputtering
    • Previous experience in low temperature measurements of physical properties such as electrical conductivity and/or magnetic properties
    • Preferably previous experience with field effect or quantum effects
    • Ability to work independently, to plan and carry out complicated tasks, and to be a part of a large, dynamical group
    • Experience in programming, finite element modelling or writing measurement software is advantageous, but not a requirement.
    • Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken

    Responsibilities

    The work will be carried out in three stages: (1) The student will fabricate complex oxide heterostructures based on SrTiO3 by a combination of pulsed laser deposition (PLD) and sputtering. Herein, a fabrication optimization with respect to electron mobility will be carried out with the aid of simple electronic transport characterization techniques. (2) The samples will be characterized in more advanced electronic transport experiments for establishing the spin-orbit coupling strength and (3) The spin-charge conversion efficiency will be evaluated either by spin-injection transport or ferromagnetic resonance spin-pumping.
