CIC05: RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY ON 2D MATERIALS

The significant growth, development, and evolution of technologies such as optoelectronics and spintronics have been always accompanied by the access to materials with targeted and extraordinary properties. Among these materials, 2D materials such as graphene, transition metal chalcogenides, metal phosphorus trichalcogenides or hybrid metal-halide perovskites have attracted the attention due to their extraordinary electronic, optic, and magnetic properties and the possibility of control them by fine tuning the composition, crystal structure and dimensionality.

In this project, we will focus on micro-Raman spectroscopy as a non-destructive and powerful tool for gaining insight into phase transitions, crystal structure or molecules arrangement and how they change with the composition, structure, and dimensionality of the 2D materials. For this purpose, we will use single crystals and flakes of 2D materials as material platform.

In this project, the Master student will be responsible for the design and preparation of the 2D materials by exfoliation and stamping on substrates. The student will be also involved in the Raman spectroscopy measurements (including low temperature tests), data analysis, and drafting of results.

We offer an international and competitive environment, state-of-the-art equipment (including a class 100 cleanroom for nanofabrication capabilities), and the possibility of performing research at the highest level.

 

Description of the research group:

The Nanodevices Group in CIC nanoGUNE is mostly interested in the electronic, optical and magnetic properties of systems in reduced dimensions. Our research program is currently articulated around different themes of research related to spintronics, multifunctional devices and advanced nanofabrication.
