PhD position: Coherent absorption in nanostructures - Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM), Netherlands

One of the biggest challenges in the development of nanomaterials for real applications in fields such as solid state lighting and energy production is to enhance their interaction with optical fields. The small dimensions of nanostructures, compared to the wavelength of light, give rise to a weak optical absorption that demands large amounts of material. The absorption of nanomaterials can be enhanced by means of resonant structures, but these structures also introduce unwanted absorption.…

Funded PhD Scholarship in Nanostructural Characterisation of Thin Film Magnetic Materials - Leeds, United Kingdom

This project will use ultra high spatial resolution analytical transmission electron microscopy to study the nanostructure-magnetic property relationships in magnetic thin film devices prepared by sputtering. Of particular interest are the interfaces between the different epilayers and with the substrate in the devices which are used in the field of spintronics for applications such as data storage.

The project will potentially involve collaborations with the University of…
