Low temperature transport of oxide heterostructures

The PhD position is located in the group for nanostructured materials of Prof. Georg Schmidt at the institute of Physics of Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg.

The PhD student will investigate tunneling and anisotropic tunneling magnetoresistance in all-oxide heterostructures. The structures are deposited by pulsed laser deposition and patterned by electron beam lithography and dry etching. Transport measurements are done at low temperature down to the mK regime in magnetic fields. The project is part of the SFB762 on functionality of oxide interfaces. The work includes the sample fabrication and characterization.

The group for nanostructured materials focusses on spin transport, spin dynamics, novel materials and high resolution lithography. Sample fabrication is done in the cleanroom facilities of the university (200 m2/class 100, 400 m2/class 10000) where all necessary state-of-the-art equipment is available for thin film deposition and nano-patterning.

The applicant should have an excellent master’s degree or diploma in physics (or an equivalent qualification). Experience in PLD, electron beam lithography and transport measurements are useful but not mandatory.

The half time position (50%)which should start as soon as possible is initially limited to three years. The salary will be determined up to pay grade 13 TV-L (50%) depending on the assigned tasks and personal qualifications.
