[g1]

A scholarship is offered within the area of Nanoelectronics,
Nanophotonics and Nanomagnetism at Department of Electronics and
Telecommunications (IET) (http://www.iet.ntnu.no/en) in Faculty of
Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering (IME),
Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

The PhD position is offered in one of the two following projects:

Project 1: Here the candidate will be involved in the
development of GaAs based nanowires grown by metal-catalyzed molecular
beam epitaxy (MBE). Optical properties of individual nanowires will be
studied by low temperature micro-photoluminescence, time-resolved
luminescence and magnetoluminescence. For these studies a new advanced
nano-optical laboratory, including a low temperature (2 K) scanning
confocal optical microscope, is available. Part of the project will
also be devoted to processing and characterization of device
structures, such as nanowire lasers and solar cells.

For more information please contact:
Professor Helge Weman, helge.weman@iet.ntnu.no, + 47 73 59 44 09

Project 2: Here the candidate will be involved in the development of
nanostructured, photonic crystal waveguide (PCW) devices based on thin
films of lanthanum-doped Pb(Zr,Ti)O3, which is an optically transparent
ferroelectric with strong linear electro-optic coupling (Pockels
effect). The films will be grown epitaxially by magnetron sputter
deposition onto buffered silicon substrates, and the optical waveguides
will be processed using standard UV lithography and focussed ion beam
(FIB) etching in the university’s new nanofabrication laboratory (NTNU
NanoLab). The optical properties of the PCWs, incl. transmission and
electro-optic modulation, will be investigated with different
techniques available in our own laboratories as well as in those of
international collaborators.
