The Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia, with its official English translation Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and acronym ICN2, 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 behaviour of matter at the nanoscale.
The project is connected to an EU-FET project in which European industries and engineering laboratories will develop novel generation of gas sensors, while the group will be in charge of the modelling tasks to guide the experimental towards optimisation of devices and support the interpretation of measurements.
Main Tasks and responsibilities:
The candidate will conduct numerical simulations of the optical and electrical conductivity of graphene under CO2 or water adsorption. These simulations will assess the impact of unwanted surface contamination on the electrical output signals. Calculation of the variations of electrical and thermal conductivities of a "heated graphene patch" will be performed using molecular dynamics and time-evolution Kubo transport methods to deduce a relative change with respect to the reference situation (absence of CO2 or water). Comparison with experimental data will be achieved to extract the intrinsic signals from parasitic ones and access the upper sensitivity limit of the detector structures.
Summary of conditions:
Estimated Incorporation date: December 2018
Theoretical physics and quantum simulations (molecular dynamics DFT and/or tight-binding modelling), and experience in device simulation or simulation of photodetectors would be a plus. Fluent in English.
