2 PhD positions / research assistants in Attosecond Microscopy at the University of Oldenburg, Germany

Within the junior research group “Attosecond Microscopy” (Dr. Jan Vogelsang) at the Institute of Physics of the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg 2 PhD positions / research assistants are to be filled as soon as possible. The positions are initially limited to 3 years.

The aim of the two doctoral projects advertised is to combine the high time resolution of attosecond laser spectroscopy with the high spatial resolution of electron microscopy in two complementary ways and to apply it to highly relevant nanosystems in the field of light-matter interaction. The first realization of attosecond time resolution on the nanoscale will make it possible to observe charge carriers in nanostructures directly as they realize their opto-electronic function. The developed methods are to be applied to various nanosystems such as 2D materials, semiconductor nanowires or plasmonic nanoparticles in order to expand our fundamental understanding of light-matter interaction. Possibilities to control these ultrafast nanoscale dynamics through nanostructuring and light pulse shaping are to be investigated.
