Danmarks Tekniske Universitet PhD position in advanced material synthesis for next-generation bio-magnetometers

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Kongens Lyngby

Do you want to contribute to a future where we can potentially understand diseases in the human brain by measuring the tiny magnetic fields created by neurons? Or use magnetometry to visualize the inner processes in energy devices such as solid-state batteries during (dis)charging?

The primary tasks will be to:

  • Synthesize a catalog of oxide heterostructures with atomic layer control using pulsed laser deposition with combinatorial material synthesis capabilities as well as with state-of-the-art molecular beam epitaxy.
  • Shape the materials into oxide/metal hybrid devices with geometrically optimized designs provided by theoretical colleagues.
  • Use above approaches to realize a new class of magnetoresistance and characterize the magnetoresistive properties using electrical measurements in magnetic fields up to 16T.
