Magnetism in atomically precise graphene nanostructures

 

 

We are seeking for candidates to fill a PhD position in experimental physics, in the fields of molecular physics and condensed matter.

 

Spins are the fundamental property of electrons and atoms on which new technologies for faster and more power efficient components, are being developed. Optimal materials are required that combine well-defined spin localization and coherence, with electrical addressability, and precise integration into mesoscopic architectures and scalability. A promising material combining these properties is graphene. Graphene is a diamagnetic material but shaped in specific forms, it can host localized spins. 

 

The PhD project aims to identify and fabricate custom-crafted graphene nanostructures on surfaces and to investigate the emergence of magnetic states using low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy. The goal is to demonstrate their potential as elementary active components for quantum spintronics devices. As a reference, recent publications from our group related to this field are: Science Advance 4, eaaq0582 (2018), Nat. Comm. 10, 200 (2018), and Nano Letters 19, 3288 (2019).

 

The research will be realized within the framework of the European Research Project SPRING: Spin research in graphene.  There the diverse groups will cooperate to fabricate atomically precise graphene flakes and nanostructures following a novel method called “on-surface synthesis”,  and to study and exploit the magnetism that they develop. 

 

The successful candidate will form part of a research group studying fundamental quantum mechanisms of surface/atom/molecule science. The group combines various methods of probe microscopy and spectroscopy with a wide variety of synthesis, growth and characterization techniques.  The research will be performed under the supervision of Prof. Nacho Pascual. More information about our research group can be found in www.nanogune.eu/nanoimaging

 

San Sebastian is a middle size city lying directly at the Atlantic seacoast and surrounded by a sensational environment of hills and mountains full of tradition and nature. The city is close to the French border, showing a dynamical cultural scene and renowned for its Basque cuisine.

 

The ideal candidate should have a Master in Physics or related fields, with a background and interest in molecular science and solid state phenomena, proficiency in English and communication skills, good hands on experimental work, and cooperative attitude to teamwork.   

 

 

For application please fill the form in https://www.nanogune.eu/nanoimaging/join-us and submit an updated CV and a letter of interest, including contact information to two reference scientists.

 

 

The deadline for applications has been extended to February 29, 2020.
