Open PhD position at the NFFA APE-HE Beamline
The goal of the thesis will be to deposit and characterize the electronic and magnetic properties of such heterostructure. The candidate will be part of APE-HE, a dynamic and young group of research part of CNR - IOM, at the Elettra synchrotron facility in Trieste.
During the thesis, the student will be involved in the full experimental study of the materials, starting from the deposition of ferromagnetic layers by electron beam evaporation sources on piezo/ferroelectric substrates, and continuing to their characterization and data analysis. A wide range of techniques will be explored due to the sensitivity to external stimuli of the heterostructure. The candidate will have direct access to the APE-HE beamline at Elettra synchrotron, where she/he will become an expert in x-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) and x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD).
