You ‘d like to contribute as a researcher? Join our Materials Research and Technology department

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

Context:

Quantum computers have the potential to revolutionise the world in many aspects. However, currently pursued platforms lack the potential to scale up systems to 1000s of qubits due to the use of fundamentally low-coherence systems and/or systems that can hardly be connected to each other.

Our strategy is to develop a scalable quantum computing architecture based on colour centres in an industrial semiconductor, silicon carbide. The use of industry-compatible semiconductor fabrication processes will allow us to produce massive amounts of qubits. Individual qubits will be based on spin systems (electron and nuclear spins), which are connected through a photonic bus.



Mission:

The objective of this PhD thesis is to develop a robust industry-compatible qubit platform based on colour centres in silicon carbide. This comprises the development of optimised fabrication procedures for the nanophotonic integration of colour centres. It also comprises control over small quantum computational registers based on coupled electron and nuclear spins. Experimental setups need to be built, which include new-generation optical cryostat systems. Through this framework, the overall goal is to show a high-fidelity connection between two quantum computational registers based on photonic interference.

I-2316 PHD STUDENT THE HUMAN DIGITAL TWIN IN THE CYBER PHYSICAL ENTERPRISE

Description

Are you passionate about research? So are we! Come and join us


The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) (https://www.list.lu) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies.

The platform is based on three pillars: a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, a cognitive analytics pillar and an interactive visualization wall (Viswall).


This PhD project is part of a bilateral research project between ITIS, the Research Center for Automatic Control (CRAN http://www.cran.univ-lorraine.fr --University of Lorraine, CNRS) and the ORISUN enterprise, in France, dealing with applications of artificial intelligence for cognitive interoperability in cyber-physical enterprises: AI4C2PS. The candidate will be registered at the University of Lorraine (doctoral school IAEM Lorraine) as a PhD student and will be integrated in the HUMOD research group of ITIS and the ISET research department of CRAN. The main workplace will be in LIST offices in Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg, while some time will be spent in Nancy, France, in CRAN offices.


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?


The introduction of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), together with advances in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), has been the major driving force for the 4th industrial revolution. The 5th revolution calls now for a better integration of human and social / societal factors, transforming progressively CPS into Cyber-Physical-Social Systems (CPSS). A Cyber-Physical Enterprise (CPE) consists of autonomous and cooperative technical elements, humans and sub-organisations that are connected based on the context within and across all levels of the global organisation, from processes, through machines and up to enterprises and supply-chains networks. Today ontology-based solutions ensure that technological components (CPS) of a CPE share a common vocabulary and can reason on exchanged knowledge. However, this is not enough to build CPSS components, ensuring CPS and human agents understand each other enough to collaborate efficiently. The next generation of CPE must reach a satisfactory level of flexibility and efficiency that better integrates humans and give human-machine teams complete autonomy for some tasks including ad-hoc reconfigurations and non-predefined problem-solving.

In this context, you will address the research challenge of building a Human Digital Twin (HDT) based on ontological, neural and stochastic models, that is realistic enough to serve as a computational model for CPS adaptation to humans. The PhD objective is to build a theoretical framework for the HDT in industry and implement it as an intelligent software agent that can support human workers to collaborate with CPSS of an enterprise. Synchronous and asynchronous contexts will be both considered, where in the first the digital twin takes part of simulations for prediction objectives and in the latter the digital twin reflects the human state and behaviour. The work will focus on:

  • The cognitive aspects of human modelling and human-CPSS collaboration, exploring the theory of cognitive architectures.
  • Exploring HDT models combining Knowledge Reasoning and Representation with Artificial Neural Network -based Machine Learning, able to explain their state and behaviours (i.e., implementing explainable artificial intelligence).

Activities

  • Participation to the AI4C2PS project as a full member, integrating the models, algorithms, and prototypes in collaboration with the project’s team of researchers, participating to project’s meeting and contributing to deliverables
  • Presentation of papers at academic conferences
  • Writing of research papers and publication of peer-reviewed journal articles
  • Write a PhD thesis in the field of computer engineering
  • Participation to outreach activities of LIST and CRAN


Must have requirements

Is Your profile described below? Are you our future colleague? Apply now!


You hold a Master’s degree or diploma in computer science, cognitive science, engineering science (control), or data science.

This combined with a good knowledge and experience of user modelling or the modelling of human factors in industry 4.0, as well as good knowledge and experience of Artificial Intelligence methods including Machine Learning and Knowledge Representation and Reasoning.

You have a clear understanding of Cyber-Physical Systems and Digital Twin in industry; you have experienced the implementation of human agents in Multi-Agent Systems or human-in-the-loop control systems.

Finally, you are interested by cognitive systems and cognitive architectures, which you have maybe explored.

Good programming skills will be welcome.

Good level written and spoken English.

Many scientists and government officials have highlighted the urgent need to reduce global carbon dioxide emissions to limit global warming. The transport sector accounts for approx. 16% of the global carbon emissions and has identified fleet electrification as the primary route to achieving climate neutrality. However, the main challenges are the current weight of components and the cost of new systems to ensure efficiency and long-term sustainability. As a result, the industry has recognized the need for transformative technologies and production methods to develop lighter, more efficient, cost-effective solutions to enable this transition and achieve climate neutrality.

Using polymer composites and additive manufacturing are straightforward options for lightweight the transport sector. However, the thermal conductivity of polymer composites is poor compared to metals and can impact the performance of electrical devices used in vehicles; therefore, this PhD project aims to develop highly conductive polymer composites that can be processed by additive manufacturing. The research will be performed in the European Project “MULTHEM” framework, where you will have the chance to network and collaborate with researchers based in France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and the UK.  

The candidate will have to prepare polymer composites by melt compounding and evaluate their 3D printability, characterize the composites with various tools, such as Differential Scanning Calorimetry, thermo-gravimetrical analysis, rheometry, microscopy, mechanical analysis, and thermal conductivity measurements. The candidate will oversee the 3D printing of components for the demonstrators of the “MULTHEM” project.

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?


The successful candidate will work on a four-year-long project focused on developing a new method of designing mechanical structures made of new fiber-reinforced vitrimer composites with a focus on repairability and fiber recycling / reuse. The research project aims to develop and validate “design-for-repair” methodologies for fiber-reinforced vitrimer composite structures. The benefits of these constructions are seen primarily in the significantly increased cost-effectiveness of construction, reduced energy consumption and minimized environmental impact.

The candidate will design a selected vitrimer composite structure with repairability in mind, determine typical failure modes, define and implement repair methods and test the structures before and after repair. For structural analyses, approaches based on analytical or numerical methods will be employed. Design exploration methods (finite element coupled with statistical / probabilistic methods) will be used to analyze construction strength variations and identify critical parameters.

We are looking for a PhD Student who is expected to strongly contribute to this project through the development of novel concepts for ion – laser interaction and demonstrate its use for the specific control of ion beams with the target of improving existing or creating novel instrumental CPO concepts/devices. These ground-breaking studies will form the basis for various diagnostics and ion manipulation experiments, leading the pathway towards e.g. single ion manipulation and hence quantum computing experiments. The project involves establishing the theoretical background of the interaction principles through calculations and simulation algorithms, the detailed elaboration of the parameters space needed for experimental studies, as well as the hardware design of a novel vacuum CPO apparatus interfaced with advanced laser beams. The PhD student will actively contribute to the design, development, demonstration of the required instrumentation, as well as to the analysis of the scientific results to be obtained. One of the main challenges of the project will be to prove experimentally the benefits of ion – laser interaction for the improvement of CPO devices, as well as integrating the concept at a later stage into existing nano-analytical instruments based on focused ion beams. He/she will have to assess the best technological configuration and the related theoretical and experimental understandings to push the intended concept towards higher technology readiness levels.


The candidate will work closely with highly skilled scientists and engineers in the dynamic environment of the AINA group within LIST’s Materials Research & Technology Department. The candidate will acquire highly valued skills in the applications of advanced laser interaction (diagnostic) techniques as well as working with CPO prototype instruments, incorporating vacuum technology concepts.

The Advanced Instrumentation for Nano-Analytics (AINA) group within the Scientific Instrumentation and Process Technology (SIPT) unit of MRT is renowned for developing innovative nano-analytical techniques for materials characterization and life science applications. Over the past few years, we have been developing in particular a Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) add-on system for the Helium Ion Microscope (HIM) and for the Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB/SEM), allowing the advantages of high spatial resolution and high sensitivity chemical information to be combined for nano-analytics. Building on this expertise, AINA is currently valorizing its research by developing correlative analytical methodologies and workflows for current and future analytical challenges. 

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

In this context, we are launching the international project MiNaBatt, involving LIST and two academic partners from the University of Gießen (D), which aims to study the mechanism of lithium-ion conduction through interfaces/interphases in hybrid electrolytes to improve interface engineering for future high-energy chemical energy storage systems with longer lifetimes and safer performances.


The lithium transfer at the interface is complicated by the fact that most material combinations react with each other to form an interphase of degradation products, which significantly influence the lithium transfer across the interface. This drastically affects cell performance, and it is vital to understand the underlying mechanisms. Therefore, we propose to study at different stages of cycling, the morphology and chemical composition of the interface. With our partners, our goal is to jointly investigate the interface chemistry at multi-scale dimensions.


To move one step further towards 2D and 3D analysis of the electrodes and their interfaces, and to limit the artefacts (sample preparation, environment, temperature ...), LIST has developed an innovative new set of tools based on Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS). In addition to the possibility of providing more complete chemical information, i.e. inorganic and also organic information, with a sub-15 nm resolution, we propose adding the possibility to perform correlative microscopy based on the combination of electron microscopy (morphology) and SIMS (chemical information).


The candidate will work with highly skilled scientists and engineers in the dynamic environment of the MRT department. The successful candidate will acquire highly valued skills in the battery field, as well as in working with advanced instruments for nano-analytics. The PhD student will take on the main role in the polymer film synthesis, development of the methodologies, techniques and instruments mentioned above. The successful candidate will coordinate local research efforts together with input from international project partners.
