Text: UOL02780 15-Jul-2019 Company Text The University of Luxembourg is a multilingual, international research University. The University of Luxembourg invites applications for the following vacancy in its Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication. The Nanomagnetism Group has an immediate opening for a PhD student: PhD student in the field of magnetic neutron scattering on Heusler alloys (M/F) Réf: 50014452 - PRIDE MASSENA Fixed-term 14-months initial contract, extendable to 48 months Full-time (40 hrs/week) Employee and student status Starting date: As soon as possible The PhD student will carry out fundamental research in the field of magnetic neutron scattering (mainly small-angle neutron scattering (SANS)) on core-shell-type magnetic Heusler alloys. Defects in the microstructure of magnetic materials give rise to a deviation of the magnetization from the perfectly aligned state. The resulting spin misalignment results in a strong magnetic neutron-scattering signal along the forward direction, which can be measured by means of the SANS technique. For a Ni-Mn-In alloy, the formation of a core-shell defect structure when annealed in the presence of an applied magnetic field has recently been reported. A central objective is to compute/model the ensuing spin textures by means of the continuum theory of micromagnetics and to compare these predictions to experimental neutron data. Candidates with experimental as well as theoretical/computational skills are encouraged to apply. The PhD student will be a member of the Nanomagnetism Group led by Prof. Dr. Andreas Michels.
