Postdoc position: Controlling the structure of light - AMOLF, Netherlands

This programme aims to redefine the boundaries of optical control at the nanoscale. We will manipulate the structure of light itself, actively controlling features that are far smaller than the wavelength to tune them both in space and time. Doing so will require detailed knowledge on how the light field is distributed near complex nanophotonic structures, as well as of light-matter interaction at the nanoscale. The programme will build on recent breakthroughs in the group in ultrafast light…

PhD position for 3 years: Technique development for simultaneous strain and chemical composition measurement at nanoscale

Collaboration framework and context

Strain engineering in advanced microelectronic devices allows for a substantial increase of carrier mobility in active layers. The advances in this field, especially for ultra-scaled devices or 3D architectures such as stacked nanowires must be supported by improvements in local strain characterization techniques. Substrate engineering, in particular the growth of epitaxial silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge) layers, is actively…

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
