Research Engineer Nanoengineering
BARCELONA ADDS VALUE (HEURISTICA DE CATALUNYA, S.L.)
The Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2 – Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology) is a non-profit international research institute located close to Barcelona, Spain. Its research lines focus on the newly discovered physical and chemical properties that arise from the fascinating behaviour of matter at the nanoscale.
Description of Group/Project:
Within the NFFA - EUROPE European Project, fast - scan capabilities of scanning probe microscopes (SPM) will be developed in collaboration with Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR) in Trieste.
One of the main limitations of SPM is their rather low time resolution that precludes the in - operando investigation of a variety of surface phenomena where time resolution down to few ten ms/image is required. Within this Fast SPM project a universal module transferable to various SPM control units will be developed. The fast module will be adapted both to STMs and to AFMs, at the maximum scanning rate achievable.
Main Tasks and Responsibilities:
Characterization of photodetector response of commercial AFMs as well as study of eventual limiting factor for fast scanning
Adapt a Nanonis control electronics to commercial AFMs
Compatibility of the Fast SPM universal module to the Nanonis - commercial AFM systems
Perform fast scan experiments with the new setup
Degree in Physics or Engineering
Experience with Atomic Force Microscopy instrumentation is mandatory. Candidates with only experience in AFM operation will not be considered. Professional experience in t he field will be positively evaluated. Good knowledge of English is required.
