PhD POSITION at Grenoble INP, France

PhD Thesis subject on: Study of the piezoelectric properties of ZnO based nanocomposites: application to energy harvesting for autonomous sensors at IMEP-LaHC / MINATEC / Grenoble-France

Contact: Gustavo ARDILA

From the fundamental point of view, the thesis will aim to deepen the understanding of electromechanical phenomena at the nanoscale by taking into account screening effects by ionized dopants, free carriers and interface traps. Several other important effects will also be studied, such as mechanical and electromechanical non-linearity, especially the higher orders of the piezoelectric effect, or flexoelectric effect, which probably plays a very important role in the piezoelectric response of nanostructures. The thesis will focus on the properties of nanowires as such, but also when immersed in a dielectric matrix to form a nanocomposite. It will be possible to vary experimentally some key parameters such as the doping and dimensions of the nanowires.

POST-DOCTORAL position available at UC Louvain, Belgium

A post-doc contract is available in advanced device physics at UCL in the field of thin-film PV cells (CIGS, CZTS), focusing on interface and passivation issues and novel solutions. The researcher should have expertise in I-V and C-V measurements of MIS structures and diodes, as well as TCAD numerical semiconductor device simulations. Previous research expertise in solar cells is not a strict requirement. The research takes place in a large EU project (
