The Research Training Group (RTG) on Tip- and laser-based 3D-Nanofabrication in extended macroscopic working areas (NanoFab) at the Technische Universität Ilmenau offers the following open positions:
The positions start on April 1st 2020. In exceptional cases the candidates can be appointed slightly earlier or later. The research positions have a duration of three years and are paid according to the TV-L E13 scale of the German public sector.
The aim of this proposal is to synergistically combine sophisticated nanofabrication techniques with the outstanding capabilities of Nanopositioning- and Nanomeasuring machines (NPM machines) so that new, multi-scale solutions arise for nanofabrication in large areas. It is to be examined to what extent smallest features can be produced efficiently in large areas by combining the latest AFM tip-based nanofabrication techniques with the NPM technique. Likewise, laser-based subwavelength processing methods in conjunction with the NPM-technology shall open up the possibility to enable truly 3D nanofabrication with highest precision on optical and particulary curved precision surfaces.
The RTG is sponsored by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG). Within the RTG, the basic physics of these technologies shall be explored to perform new approaches for high-level advanced nanofabrication technologies in extended ranges.
The RTG provides a creative and inspiring environment, excellent laboratory facilities, for example at the Centre of Micro- and Nanotechnologies or several NPM-machines as a high-qualified experimental platform. The RTG strongly supports students wishing complete their PhD studies within a three years period. Further details can be found at https://www.tu-ilmenau.de/nanofab/ .
