Korea-Tübingen PhD Program: Project 3/2024: PhD Project Title: High-throughput studies of multi-component thin films.

Topic Description: The compositional optimization of novel complex multi-component materials for their application requires high-throughput studies probing many different compositions. In this project, we aim for correlative structure-property studies of organic semiconductor thin films prospective for application in photovoltaics. The gradient thin films will be deposited by means of organic molecular beam deposition method using a dedicated chamber recently developed in the group. The spatial resolution of modern sample characterization techniques, such as X-ray scattering at synchrotron sources, atomic force microscopy and UV-Vis spectroscopy, will allow probing structure and optical properties of such gradient films effectively providing high compositional resolution using just single samples.

Faculty: Faculty of Sciences
Institute/Section/Subject: Institute of Applied Physics

Supervising Professor(s): Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Frank Schreiber

About the Supervisor(s): Graduated from Bochum University (Dr. rer. nat., 1995), Post-doctoral Fellow at Princeton University (1996 – 1997), Research Assistant in Stuttgart (University and MPI-MF, 1998 – 2002), University Lecturer at the University of Oxford (2002 – 2004), Professor (Chair) at Tübingen University (since 2004), Dean of Studies in Nano-Science (since 2011).
Research interests include organic and hybrid thin films (growth mechanisms, structure and properties), surface-sensitive X-ray and neutron scattering techniques and machine learning-based analysis of the scattering data.

Requirements for the application:
Required Degrees: Master or equivalent degree in Physics or Chemistry
Language Requirements: English (IELTS 6,5 or TOEFL equivalent)
Notes: Knowledge of programming languages such as Python or Matlab is a strong advantage
