Transcript

  • 1. PhD student: Ultrafast spectroscopy on quantum interference effects in charge transfer Project description We seek a talented and ambitious PhD student for a challenging multidisciplinary research project on specific quantum mechanical effects in charge transfer studied by ultrafast spectroscopy and theory. The project aims at the study of charge transfer in donor-bridge- acceptor systems using time-resolved spectroscopy and quantum chemical calculations. The use of single molecules as functional electronic components represents the ultimate size limit for electronics. Therefore, the study of charge transport on the single molecule level is of large fundamental en practical interest. On this small scale, quantum mechanical effects such as quantum interference will play an important role and should be considered explicitly. The project is part of a FOM program on the effects of quantum interference effects in single molecules. In this program, five groups from Delft and Leiden from a variety of disciplines (organic synthesis, single molecule conductance, time resolved spectroscopy and theory) collaborate to gain fundamental knowledge on quantum effects in single molecules. For these studies a variety of π-conjugated molecules is needed that will be designed specifically for studying these effects. The project described here will be performed in the Optoelectronic Materials section in the group of Dr. Ferdinand Grozema at the Department of Chemical Engineering of TU Delft. Requirements The successful candidate should hold a MSc degree in physical chemistry or physics and a strong motivation to work in an interdisciplinary team of chemists and physicists. A background in time-resolved spectroscopy and/or computational chemistry is a strong advantage but not an absolute necessity. Very good spoken and written English is mandatory. For information or applications please contact Dr. F.C. Grozema (email: F.C.Grozema@tudelft.nl) Applications should include letter of motivation, CV and names of at least two people who can be contacted for a letter of recommendation.   More information about the department and the group can be found on the website: www.cheme.tudelft.nl/om.
