Nano-structured functional oxides – such as thin films, super-lattices or nano-composites – attract great interest because of the wealth of possibilities that they offer for optimizing functional properties and even inducing new ones. The focus of the present project is on ferroelectric composites displaying negative capacitance, an exotic effect by which the voltage externally applied to a system can be amplified, within a part of the system, without any additional energy cost. We aim at better understanding and optimizing the ferroelectric negative capacitance effect. This project is a collaboration between Pavlo Zubko’s experimental group at University College London (UK) and Jorge Íñiguez’s theoretical team at LIST (Luxembourg).
In this context, we are looking for a post-doc to conduct theoretical research at LIST. More specifically, this post-doc will:
The post-doc will work under the supervision of Dr. Jorge Íñiguez (email@example.com), whose recent work on related projects can be consulted in Google Scholar, and to whom interested candidates are welcome to address their queries.
Candidates are expected to:
