Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

The Advanced Instrumentation for Nano-Analytics (AINA) group of the MRT department at the LIST is renowned for developing innovative nano-analytical techniques for materials characterization. During the past several years we have been developing Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) add-on systems for different types of modern Focused Ion Beam (FIB) instruments. We have also developed two prototype instruments for transmission helium ion microscopy (e.g. Mousley et al, Beilstein J. Nano., 10, 1648-1657, 2019, Tabean et al, Ultramicroscopy, 233, 113439, 2022). The research activities of the AINA group cover fundamentals, instrument development and applications.


In this context, we are launching the project AIMSTHIM2 which aims to investigate the variations in ion energy-loss characteristics with nanoscale lateral resolution. The crystal orientation and/or temperature dependent ion energy-loss to channeling and non-channeling conditions in imaging mode will be systematically studied. This knowledge may lead to non-destructive mapping of strain fields, identification of interstitial atom type and ppm-level impurities. These experiments have the potential to unveil hitherto unexplored fundamental nanoscale mechanisms related to energy-exchange and charge-exchange processes occurring during the interaction of slow keV ions and solids with unparalleled lateral resolution.

Many novel vitrimers have been reported of late, with the impressive range of properties thus realized providing ample evidence of the pathway to sustainability promised by these materials. Vitrimer behavior is neither simple nor easily predictable, however, and the fundamental understanding needed for their design is lacking. To address this, atomistic & coarse-grained simulations of bond-exchange processes and the elastic response in vitrimers will be carried out as a function of the catalytic centers present. Temperature-dependent activation energies and bond exchange kinetics (Arrhenius relations) will be explored. Moreover, the segmental mobility and elastic moduli of vitrimers will be computed and compared with experimental data. In generating this understanding, the successful candidate will make a strong and impactful contribution through the microscale modeling of such materials.

The candidate will apply computer simulation techniques (molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, etc), polymer physics principles and statistical methods to model the behavior of such materials. Furthermore, the candidate will have access to HPC clusters in LIST and University of Luxembourg and will be involved in the generation and interpretation of complementary experimental data

There is an increasing demand for materials to be recyclable, especially composite materials and other structures that are difficult to recycle. As a consequence, there is a clear need for a more forward-thinking approach that addresses a new generation of composite materials designed with repair, reuse and recycling (not downcycling) in mind. This calls especially for developing new debonding solutions for bonded composite structure materials. However, it is extremely challenging to incorporate debonding-on-demand features into an adhesive system. In this context, the main objective of this project is to develop a new debonding-on-demand technology based on an inspired intumescent-based concept in order to disassemble bonded composite structures.

We are looking for a Master Student who will strongly contribute to this ambitious project through the development of innovative debonding-on-demand technology. The first task will be dedicated to the development of new formulations to debond structural composites at suitable temperatures. Several approaches will be used in order to incorporate intumescent particles in the adhesive without degrading the adhesive joint properties. Various morphologies and formulations will be defined and elaborated. Then, in-depth characterization of the debonding phenomena triggered by the modified adhesive will be investigated to reveal relevant structure-properties / performance relationships. In addition to scientific support by recognized experts in the field, the candidate will have access to fully equipped labs for fiber composite preparation. Their efforts will be aided by state of the art characterization facilities, including relevant spectrometric (FTIR, NMR, XPS, MALDI) tools, structural characterization methods (SEM, AFM, microCT), thermal analysis equipment (TGA, DSC, DMA, TMA, etc.), mechanical (quasi-static tensile, flexural, etc.) and physical testing (contact angle).

To optimize the design of vitrimers (polymer networks containing dynamic covalent bonds) for enhanced reprocessability and recyclability, it is of fundamental importance to understand the relationship between macroscopic properties and materials behavior at the molecular level. More specifically, the analysis of segmental mobility and bond exchange dynamics will generate a deep understanding of the healing process and the ability of dynamic bonds to undergo exchange in respond to various external stimuli.

The successful candidate will characterize vitrimers before and after an applied stimulus (i.e. heat and / or mechanical stress) via a multiscale and multidisciplinary approach. It will be based on rheology and dielectric spectroscopy to gain information on segmental mobility and bond exchange.

Reworkable polymer networks (vitrimers) often contain small-molecule catalysts. The presence of such molecules can plasticize these networks and degrade their mechanical properties, however. One way to address this is to incorporate polymers containing catalytic centers. Given proper design, such additives may enhance the mechanical properties of the networks they are added to as well. To test these hypotheses, this position focuses on the preparation and characterization of a variety of polymeric catalysts, their addition to polymer networks, and subsequent properties testing of the resultant vitrimers.

We are looking for a young researcher with a strong background and extensive hands-on experience in synthetic organic chemistry (incl. standard water- and air-sensitive techniques) who will synthesize various monomers, perform relevant polymerization reactions and study the properties of the resultant polymers, represent their structure in Chemdraw (or equivalent) and interpret associated NMR spectra. They will further assist with the preparation and characterization of vitrimeric semi-interpenetrating networks (semi-IPNs) containing the polymeric catalysts they have produced. These efforts will be aided by state of the art characterization facilities, including relevant spectrometric (FTIR, NMR, MALDI) and chromatographic (GPC) tools, structural characterization methods (SEM, AFM), thermal analysis equipment (TGA, DSC, DMA, TMA, rheometry, etc.) and mechanical testing (quasi-static tensile, flexural, etc.).

Hybrid composites combine conventional and renewable fibers and promise increased energy absorption, stiffness and water resistance as well as reduced mass, cost, and carbon footprint. Yet, hybrid composites present technical and environmental challenges during their lifecycle and especially at end-of-life, as they are hard to recycle. In this project the focus lies in using benzoxazine vitrimers as matrix materials for hybrid synthetic/renewable and renewable/renewable fiber composites, not only to achieve high performance but also to explore chemical recyclability and establish levels of textile degradation during such processes. This will be complemented by an exploration of mechanical recycling to realize multi-tiered lifecycle options, with the aim to create fully sustainable, high performance hybrid composites.

In addition to scientific support by recognized experts in the field, the candidate will have access to fully equipped labs for fiber composite preparation and testing at various scales. Their efforts will be aided by state of the art characterization facilities, including relevant spectrometric (FTIR, NMR, XPS, MALDI) and chromatographic (GPC) tools, structural characterization methods (SEM, AFM, microCT), thermal analysis equipment (TGA, DSC, DMA, TMA, etc.), mechanical (quasi-static tensile, flexural, etc.) and physical testing (contact angle).

Natural fibers (e.g. bamboo, hemp, flax, coir), present complex nonlinear tensile behavior at both the technical and elementary fiber level. While their constituents (cellulose, lignin, pectins) are fixed, their properties vary widely due to microstructure and compositional heterogeneity. By better understanding fiber microstructure and the associated mechanisms governing mechanical behavior, the successful candidate will link natural fiber architecture to composite properties, providing a path to enhanced performance and a vision for controlled failure mechanisms through control of material structure. Moreover, an analysis of both fiber architecture and chemical composition will also provide a much more complete understanding of the mechanisms of moisture uptake and thermal decomposition. At the composite level, the modulation of natural fiber composition will be explored as a means of improving transverse mechanical properties.

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?

The MRT department is looking for 8 talented candidates to join the HYMAT Doctoral Training Unit (4-years PhD studentships) supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). HYMAT is a large and multidisciplinary project that focuses on the discovery and development of materials for hydrogen generation and utilization. HYMAT is built around 8 highly complementary research axes, which will address key materials challenges faced in establishing specific technologies that will underpin the hydrogen economy. The 8 PhD students will be supervised by experienced scientists and be granted access to state-of-the-art infrastructure to perform research on a topic at the forefront of societal and scientific discussion.

The PhD student will work in the framework of the HYMAT research axis #8, Correlative microscopy for nanoscale analysis of hydrogen interactions with materials for energy applications. Analysis of hydrogen in materials remains extremely challenging. Whilst Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) can be used to analyze all elements and isotopes, its lateral resolution is fundamentally limited to ~ 10 nm by the ion-solid interaction volume. To overcome this limitation, the AINA group at LIST has been developing correlative nano-analytics combining high-resolution SIMS imaging with other techniques. In this context, this PhD thesis will focus on: (i) identifying strategies to combat H embrittlement by correlating direct images of H-trap sites and microstructural features, (ii) developing a prototype sample holder for in-situ bending of H-charged material in a SIMS instrument, (iii) gaining fundamental, direct correlation of pre-defined strain fields and H-(re)distribution, and (iv) adapting correlative microscopy techniques for broader applications in the field of hydrogen-materials interactions. In consultation with the project leader, the PhD student will design and perform relevant experiments, analyze, and interpret the results, write scientific articles and disseminate the results in international conferences.

M-22118 - PhD STUDENT IN NANOSCALE INVESTIGATION OF POLYMER-INORGANIC BATTERIES BY SIMS

Description

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

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) 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. 

https://www.list.lu/


You ‘d like to contribute as a PhD Student? 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.


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. The PhD student will design and perform relevant experiments, analyze, and interpret the results, write scientific articles and disseminate the results at international conferences.

The IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) department, with its 100 researchers and engineers, focuses on the digital transformation of operations in organizations with traditional environments and digital ecosystems, with the aim of improving their performance and innovation capacity. The common thread throughout ITIS is to develop the most efficient use of big data to ensure the most appropriate decision-making processes.

The department relies on the Data Analytics Platform: a hybrid infrastructure covering the entire range of data analytics activities. The platform is based on three pillars: a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, a cognitive analytics pillar and an interactive visualization wall (Viswall).

Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

LIST is looking for a highly motivated candidate with skills in software development.  

The successful candidate will support the implementation of prototypes using simulation and emulation tools to support the research and development activities of the IT for Innovative Services (ITIS) department. 


One of the domains is wireless communication where the ongoing rollout of 5G opens up new opportunities to implement services with low latency and massive connectivity capabilities - in particular in the cooperative, connected and automated mobility domain. However, these emerging networks come with complex architectures and it is not always easy for developers to plan the deployment of their service and to evaluate its potential performance and optimal configurations. This is where simulation and emulation come in. Once the systems are properly simulated, their operations can be optimized by considering trade-offs between usually conflicting objectives like efficiency or energy consumption. This is where the so-called techniques of multi-objective optimizations come in to complement simulation and emulation.


Another domain is smart logistic with a focus on waste management optimisation.


The specific missions of the candidate will include, but are not limited to:

  • Support the department's research work by implementing prototypes using simulation and emulation tools.
  • Create interfaces to inject real data into these environments.
  • Assist in the performance evaluation and optimisation of 5G applications, especially in the field of connected mobility.

The common thread throughout ITIS is to develop the most efficient use of big data to ensure the most appropriate decision-making processes.

The department relies on the Data Analytics Platform: a hybrid infrastructure covering the entire range of data analytics activities. The platform is based on three pillars: a high-performance computing (HPC) infrastructure, a cognitive analytics pillar and an interactive visualization wall (Viswall).

Our world is becoming increasingly digital. Vast amounts of data about how individuals and groups behave, how machines and equipment work, and how the environment evolves are collected every day. The Data Science & Analytics Unit (DSA) supports this digital transformation of our society and our economy by focusing on the interplay between people, data, computers and the physical world.

The Visualization (VISU) Group of DSA focuses on leveraging the impressive human visual capabilities to gain insight into large complex data, to understand models and to take informed decisions. The team adopts the visual analytics paradigm in which a mix of visualization techniques are combined with various advanced analytics methods in user-friendly applications.


Responsibilities

How will you contribute?

The VISU group has developed strong expertise in visual analytics for graph/network data, high dimension and mixed data as well as text data for applications like industry 4.0, automotive, health or life sciences. We’d like to further develop our portfolio of activities in these sectors and to grow in complementary application fields in particular finance, smart cities/regions, and edutechs. Our ambition is to imagine generic methodologies, approaches and techniques that can be transferable across application domains.


In the context of the upcoming regulation on Trustworthy AI, we also foresee visualization as a powerful mean to provide explanations of AI models and outcomes. Therefore, the VISU group is developing synergies with the AI-centered groups of the DSA Unit. For instance, the question of biases is present both in AI and in visualization and it should be jointly considered in the Trustworthy AI paradigm.

Visualization is also closely related to Human-Computer Interaction. When it is required, the VISU group is therefore joining its forces with HCI experts of other groups from the DSA unit who are specialized in User experience (UX), Human Factors and Augmented/Mixed Reality (AR/MR).


You should be a recognized researcher in your field with a documented footprint in the scientific community. Your main mission will be to promote RD&I activities and recognition within the Visualization group and the DSA unit by acquiring funding, managing large RD&I projects and maintaining / further developing your profile in the relevant scientific and technological communities. 


You will lead the definition, and manage as PI, national and international RD&I projects of high complexity as well as multiannual and/or multidisciplinary RD&I projects. 


You will additionally lead and promote the dissemination, valorisation and transfer of RD&I results (patents, licenses, prototypes, publications, technical reports, participation in conferences) and publish scientific results in high-quality peer-reviewed journals or conferences. Such efforts should be performed in strong collaboration with other members of the VISU group, the DSA unit and the department and will contribute to the development of Research & Technology activities in LIST. Moreover, you will actively contribute to the development of scientific and technological cooperation networks at the national and international level.


You should have an outstanding academic background and a very strong record of accomplishments as far as publications and project management are concerned. Significant experience with application-oriented research is an asset including collaboration(s) with industry and transfer of RD&I results to public and/or private partners. Experience organizing and/or participating in multilateral research consortia (such as EU projects) would be a great advantage for this function.
