The Nanoscale Sciences Department (Org. 1124) seeks a postdoctoral research associate to conduct experimental research related to thermal phenomena at the nanoscale and its impact on the properties of ultrathin materials including: microelectronic device layers (GaN, GaAs, and complex oxides), two-dimensional systems (i.e., graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, molybdenum disulphide, germanene, and two-dimensional electron gases/2DEG) along with devices composed of these materials. Through the use and development of advanced characterization techniques including – Raman thermal imaging, scanning photocurrent microscopy, IR-thermography, time/frequency domain thermoreflectance (TDTR/FDTR), and scanning probe techniques – fundamental thermal properties including thermal conductivity, specific heat and Kapitza conductance will be measured as a means to understand and leverage the thermal properties of two-dimensional materials in order to enhance the total performance of the vast array of devices based on this nascent material class It is anticipated that the postdoctoral researcher’s activity will generate a significant number of high impact archival journal articles while also having the potential to generate intellectual property related to novel device concepts, cooling solutions, and next generation characterization techniques.
