Magnetic two-dimensional (2D) materials are very promising building blocks for the realization of ultra compact and innovative spintronic devices. We are looking for a Postdoc researcher who will investigate molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and properties of Fe5-xGeTe2 (FGT, with x ~ 0). FGT is a 2D ferromagnetic conductor which it exhibits a Curie temperature around or above room temperature, which is a key aspect regarding practical applications. The overall goal is to create an unprecedented structural/magnetic phase diagram for epitaxially grown Fe5-xGeTe2 films with thicknesses down to a few atomic layers. For this, the Postdoc researcher will optimize and further develop MBE protocols and employ several characterization methods for the investigation of the magnetic, electrical and structural properties. This project will benefit from the excellent experimental facilities for MBE growth and characterization of 2D materials at the PDI as well as the close collaboration with highly competent senior scientists.
Application deadline is 31st of July.
