The Deschler group at the Walter Schottky Institute of TU Munich invites applications for

 

Master Projects on Magneto-Optical Effects of Novel 2D Materials 


The group

The Deschler group is an independent research group at the Walter Schottky Institute of TU Munich, established through the DFG Emmy-Noether Program and an ERC Starting Grant. Its research focuses on the ultrafast dynamics of functional materials and their applications for energy applications.

Your project
You will investigate the outstanding properties of novel 2D magnetic semiconductors with the design and operation of cutting-edge magneto-optical setups to explore the interaction of magnetism and luminescence in these materials.  Specifically, this could be work on one of the following topics or a mixture of both in agreement with your supervisor

  • Design of Novel 2D Magnetic Hybrid Perovskites

Due to their outstanding optoelectronic properties and high defect tolerance, organo-metal halide perovskites form an ideal system for efficient magnetic doping. 

There are a lot of promising semiconducting perovskites showing a strong photoluminescence, which are suitable as a host material for magnetic doping with transition metal ions like Mn2+, Fe2+, Co2+ and Ni2+. In this project you will fabricate high-quality crystals and thin films with solution-/vapor-based synthesis and investigate them with structural, magnetic and optical measurements to identify the most promising materials.

  • Construction and Operation of Magneto-Optical Setups

Materials that combine magnetic and semiconducting properties are desired for spintronic applications.  Optical properties such as the polarization of the luminescence can be controlled via the spin-alignment in these materials. In this project you will design and build a setup for the investigation of magneto-optical effects like Kerr rotation, Faraday rotation, magnetic circular dichroism and magnetic circularly polarized luminescence.

 

In your Master’s project in our group, you will have the chance to gain hands-on experience in some of the most exciting fields of condensed matter physics. You will run experiments at cryogenic temperatures, control magnetic fields and laser irradiation and learn state-of-the art ultrafast spectroscopy. Dedicated support from a PhD student or postdoc will be available during your project.  You will be expected to make scientific discoveries and contribute to the dynamic atmosphere of our group.
