Post-doc position : study of Gallium Oxide based devices for power electronics
The Laboratoire des Solides Irradiés (UMR 7642 CEA – CNRS – Ecole polytechnique) is inviting applications for a 1-year post-doc starting in February 2023.
About the position :
The post-doc position is funded by GOSPELS ANR project which aims to design a novel vertical p-MgNiO/n-AlGa2O3 power diode, optimized for high power electronics. Whitin GOSPELS the candidate will investigate the fundamental materials properties of β-(Al)Ga2O3 & (Mg)NiO. The activities will be focused on theoretical and numerical modeling and simulation that will be then shared with the experimental partners. Density Functional Theory and/or Many-Body Perturbation Theory will be used to provide the band-structures and dielectric functions for the bulk semiconductors (Ga2O3 and NiO), successively the same approach will be used to investigate MgNiO and AlGa2O3. AlGa2O3/MgNiO heterojunctions at the device level will be investigated using COMSOL Multiphysics and SILVACO.
Candidate Requirements :
PhD in material science or condensed matter physics . Experience in theoretical spectroscopy is required. Knowledge of standard ab initio software package and optical response calculation will be appreciated. COMSOL Multiphysics and SILVACO
