Two paths will be explored for the design of transmitters: (i) deposition of nanowires synthesized by another laboratory; (ii) synthesis of nanowires by etching.
These two approaches will be studied in parallel and the results will be characterized by different techniques of scanning probe microscopy (AFM, STM, spectroscopy and electric modes, etc.) and electron microscopy (SEM) in order to gain maximum experience in large-scale dimensional control and organization.

Electronic field emission is used in a wide range of applications but requires increasingly smaller devices that are difficult to mass-produce. The difficulty generally lies in the reproducible realization of tip-shaped emitters whose apex, geometry and length are controlled at the nanometer scale. The challenge is all the more difficult for the design of emitter arrays, where each element must have the same characteristics.
The PANASSE project (Planar Assembly of NAnowires for SidewallS Emission) concerns the development of nanowire-based emitters, using an edge of the nanowire instead of its apex. This structure has been patented by Thales (project partner).
Your mission will be to take up three nanotechnological challenges: study and synthesis of the dielectric environment of a nanowire emitter, design of emitter arrays that are reproducible on a large scale by Top/Down and Bottom/up methods, characterization and monitoring of the emission on the structure in operation.

Work in clean rooms and experimental platforms.
Interaction with local and remote research teams.
Strong interaction with technical staff.

Eligibility criteria

You have a PhD in materials science, electronics, physics or a related field.
You have a strong scientific background (device physics, electronics, testing...), very good skills in micro/nano-fabrication and an interest in experimental work. You have a first experience in the development and testing of components/microsystems.
The work will be done within a mixt project team of engineers and researchers, in relation with industrial and academic partners, in France. Travel and missions are possible for meetings and conferences. The profiles and skills of the colleagues being varied, it will be essential to show open-mindedness and initiative.
You are fluent in English and have good writing skills: the results obtained and the inventive activity will have to be the subject of scientific reports and publications in English.
