PhD position in nanomaterials: Halide Perovskite Nanocrystal-Based LEDs and Lasing

We are looking for highly motivated doctoral and postdoctoral candidates who are interested in multidisciplinary research and want to join our collaborative network of nanoscientists.
All positions offer excellent re­search and training conditions within the stimulating scientific environment of the Center for NanoScience, the Collaborative Research Center SFB863 "Forces in Biomolecular Systems", the Collaborative Research Center SFB1032 "Nanoagents" and the Collaborative Research Center TRR235 "Emergence of Life" .
This project "Halide Perovskite Nanocrystal-Based LEDs and Lasing" is offered by Prof. Alexander Urban.

Activities and responsibilities

Halide Perovskite Nanocrystals have intriguing properties with tunable and highly efficient photoluminescence. Recently we have developed two new perovskite NC systems: blue-emitting nanoplatelets and water-resistant encapsulated NCs. In this reseach project, they will be integrated into light-emitting applications, such as LEDs and lasers. Working in close collaboration with chemists, the specific shielding of the NC needs to be tuned specifically to provide stability while allowing integrability into the devices. The fundamental properties of the NCs in thin films and complete devices will need to be studied and an emphasis will be placed on energy transfer mechanisms.

Qualification profile

Candidates should have a strong background in physics (solid state, quantum mechanics), preferably also with knowledge of device engineering and/or chemistry. Also helpful would be cleanroom experience.
