PhD position on insulator-metal transition in NbO2

we are looking for a highly motivated PhD candidate to fill a PhD position at the University of Potsdam funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

This PhD project will investigate the photoinduced insulator-metal transition (IMT) in the transition-metal oxide NbO2, which is a less well-known sibling of the prototypical IMT material VO2. We shall uncover the driving mechanism behind the IMT phase transition by various time-resolved techniques such as UV/VIS/IR pump-probe spectroscopy and by our unique facility forultrafast x-ray diffraction, which allow us to disentangle changes in the electronic and lattice degrees of freedom after photoexcitation.

The applicant must have a Master's degree in Physics or a related discipline and should ideally have experience with laser setups and/or pump-probe techniques. Please sent your application to Dr. Marc Herzog before 31.1.2024 and do not hesitate to send informal inquiries.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you at UDKM!

PhD position on ultrafast x-ray diffraction
