Position: Postdoc - Shining Light on Halide Perovskites: Exploring Atomic Processes with Scanning Probe Microscopy
Institution: University of Luxembourg
Location: Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
Duties: The successful candidate will be hired for a 2-year postdoctoral contract in the framework of the LION project (Light on Perovskite) funded by the Luxembourg National Research Fund. The goal of the project is to study light-induced degradation of halide perovskite materials down to the atomic scale. The first task of the postdoctoral researcher will be to establish a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) growth protocol for producing atomically flat mixed cation, mixed halide perovskite absorbers. Then the postdoctoral researcher will investigate ion migration and phase segregation using state-of-the-art equipment, such as Scanning Probe Microscopies (SPM) in ultra-high vacuum (UHV), as well as X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS). Particular attention will be paid to the impact of light and how halide phase segregation could be mitigated
Requirements: The postdoctoral researcher needs to possess a Ph.D. in Physics, Material Science, or Chemistry with excellent grades and scientific publications; Very good written and oral communication skills in English are expected; A solid background in Scanning Probe Techniques and/or Photoelectron Spectroscopy is a must; Previous experience in the use of ultra-high vacuum systems is well appreciated; Very good knowledge in solid state physics, semiconductors, solar cells, and surface science is expected; Experience gathered in the field of Perovskite material and/or photovoltaic is desired but not required; International experience
