Description of Group/Project:

Advanced Electronic Materials and Devices Group focuses on the material sciences and technology aspects of novel electronic materials, with a strong emphasis on graphene as well as other 2D materials (MoS2). The group also works towards the development of technological applications based on these materials such as electronics, bioelectronics and biosensing, neural interfaces, etc.

The activities cut across different scientific aspects, from the fundamentals (the physics of devices and semiconductors) to materials (growth of graphene and 2D materials by CVD, surface functionalization, advanced characterisation), through to devices (fabrication technology, nanofabrication) and applications (biosensors, neural implants and biomedical technologies, energy storage and conversion).


Main Tasks and responsibilities:

The successful candidate will give support to the research team in the following topics: i) CVD growth of graphene, ii) transfer of graphene, iii) device fabrication.

The tasks will involve the maintenance of the graphene reactor as well as the implementation of upgrades (new gas lines, etc), the optimisation of the graphene transfer process, and the support to the fabrication of graphene-based devices.
