At the Institute of Applied Physics, in the new research unit for Physis of Three-dimensional Nanomaterials, TU Wien offers a position as University Assistant (Post-Doc).
Spintronics is an emerging area of nanoelectronics that exploits the spin of electrons to store and process information. The development of spin-based hardware components and devices is one of the most promising approaches to realize disruptive green computing technologies, going beyond Moore approaches.
Our group is carrying out pioneering work on three-dimensional spintronics, where we study new physical phenomena in 3D magnetic devices which go beyond the standard approach in nanoelectronics, currently based on planar geometries. Moving to 3D has a great potential to create ultra-high density low-power devices and to exploit new physical effects which emerge as a consequence of the change in dimensionality.
In this program, the candidate will carry out experimental work devoted to the design, fabrication and characterization of three-dimensional spintronic systems. For this, state of the art equipment to fabricate and characterize complex 3D multilayered heterostructures will be employed, in combination with advanced computational techniques. Collaborations with other international groups and synchrotron experiments at large international facilities are also expected.
This research program provides a unique intersection of various areas in spintronics, including thin film deposition, magneto-optical and magneto-electrical characterisation, and magnetic modelling. For this ambitious objective, we are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher fulfilling these requirements:
