    PositionPhD scholarship
    No. of Position(s)1
    Research AreaSolid State Battery, Physics, Chemistry, Materials science
    ScholarshipAccording to standard norms
    WorkplaceDTU Energy, Technical University of Denmark
    Contract Period3 Years


    A MSc degree in engineering, physics, chemistry, materials science or similar


    • A strong background in applied physics/materials science
    • Thin film growth by pulsed laser deposition or sputtering
    • Fabrication and testing of electrical thin film devices and materials
    • The ability to work independently with a strong drive, to plan and carry out complicated tasks, and to be a part of a large, dynamic group
    • Good communication skills in English, both written and spoken
    • Experience in programming, finite element modelling or writing measurement software is advantageous, but not a requirement.


    We seek a PhD candidate for synthesis, preparation, and materials processing of new metal oxides thin films to fabricate all Solid-State Batteries. This involves the synthesis of solid-state electrolyte materials and electrodes based on thin films devices with tailored microstructure and interfaces. Investigation of structurally defined sharp interfaces without impurities is an effective approach to develop low-resistance interfaces in batteries. Electrolyte/electrode interfaces fabricated without exposing the electrode surfaces to air provide an ideal platform to clarify intrinsic battery performance and this will be carried out using Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) and sputtering. The ultimate aim of this work is to fabricate a working micro solid-state-battery on Si. This promises a step-change in energy density and a reduction in battery volume.
