Scientific project:

The goal of this internship is to realize ultrathin films of metallic and magnetic layers on insulating substrates of very low symmetry. The samples will be made in the clean room of the Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques lab in Paris and characterized by x-ray diffraction and vibrating sample magnetometry or magneto-optical effects for their magnetic properties. The second part of the internship will be to achieve lithography and electronic transport measurements on those samples for magnetic memory applications. This part will be done in part in Singapore, in collaboration with Pr. Yang’s group, at the Computer and Electrical Engineering departement of the National University of Singapore.

The internship will take part in the STM team of the Matériaux et Phénomènes Quantiques lab, which is dedicated to fundamental research on frontier materials for further applications in quantum electronics and photonics. A trip to Singapore is possible during the internship, depending on the advancement of the project.

Required skills : Motivation, good relationship, theoretical knowledge on material sciences (crystal structure, x-ray diffraction, basis of magnetism would be appreciated). A former experience in a clean room environment will be an asset but is not mandatory.

Possibility to go on with a PhD: YES
Envisaged fellowship: Labex SEAM, Doctoral School
