Please note: appointees will be expected to take up this role as soon as possible.
The Photonics group in AMBER research centre lead by Professor John Donegan wishes to hire a Research Fellow to further investigate the degradation of Au nanoscale materials. Simple optical techniques will be used to damage the Au and examine how the defect voids are formed and how they move. We will examine how the development of alloys and metal superlattices affect the void formation as well as the plasmonic properties.
The research work will be guided by input from Professor Stefano Sanvito whose genomic materials platform will be used to inform the project on novel materials to examine for HAMR. In addition, we will work closely with the group of Professor Amanda Petford-Long in the Argonne National Laboratories, in the US.
