Fundamental and Applied Studies of Nanoparticle (NP) Detection using LIBD / LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Detection / Spectroscopy

The PhD project aims to gain insights into fundamental LIBD processes and applied research on colloid / NP measurements. The fundamental PhD project will focus on implementation of a femto second (fs) laser (Ti sapphire) at 400 nm operated at high frequencies (kHz), possibly allowing measurements with a time resolution below one second. It is the goal to develop a well-defined breakdown probability model for fs laser pulses on colloids / NP which is supposed to further improve the limits of detection of the LIBD method.

PhD candidates with strong background in physics, spectroscopy and chemistry should send their application (CV, letter of motivation etc.) until 22.08.2010 to Nicole Bachmann ( Further information can be directly obtained from, (

This is a Postdoc or Ph.D. position of detection of nanomaterials using LIBS. Because from the first paragraph it seems to be a Ph.D position, while second paragraph shows Ph.D. candidates are required i.e Postdoc position.

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
