Send your Expression of Interest
We have been very successful in acquiring third-party funding in the field of perovskite-photovoltaics and 2D semiconductor optoelectronic devices. Job descriptions for several PhD and Postdoc Positions will appear soon on this homepage
In advance, we encourage you to send an Expression of Interest (including a short motivation letter and a CV). We are particularly looking for candidates with a background in solid state physics and/or optical spectroscopy. Experience in device fabrication, characterization or modelling is highly appreciated. Please send your Expression of Interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The research of the “Soft Matter Physics” group is concerned with understanding the physical processes in soft matter semiconductors, including organic and more recently organo-metallic perovskite semiconductors, and at their interfaces with inorganic semiconductors and metals.
Our particular focus is on the nature and dynamics of excitations and charges in these systems, with the goal of improving their performance in electronic and optoelectronic applications. The group has therefore installed a variety of transient techniques, designed to follow the fate of these excitations in functional devices on all relevant time scales, from sub-picoseconds through steady state. The group is particularly known for our time-delayed collection field setup, which is unique with regard to temporal resolution and sensitivity, but we also make use of various all-optical techniques including steady state and time resolved fluorescence spectroscopy and femtosecond transient absorption. The results of these measurements serve as inputs for extensive drift-diffusion simulations, and for the development of analytical models to describe the function of entire devices.
With this knowledge at hand, materials and device structures are further optimized, with the prospect to push the optoelectronic performance parameters beyond current limits.
