Post-Doc Position Hybrid organic/inorganic photovoltaic devices

THIS POSITION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

BC: 68497

The Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (CBN@UniLE) in Lecce is activating a procedure for the selection of n. 1 Post-doc position to work in the framework of the national project “MAAT” (PON R&C 2007-2013 - n. 713/Ric. 29/10/2010 –project’s title: Molecular NAnotechnology for HeAlth and EnvironmenT “MAAT”; Nanotecnologie molecolari per la salute dell'uomo e l'ambiente; project code PON02_00563_3316357; CUP: B31C12001230005; PI: Prof. Giuseppe Gigli)

IIT has recently launched a strategic line of activities focused on the development of hybrid organic/inorganic solar cells. The exploration of novel materials and device architectures based on polymeric/organic materials, colloidal nanocrystals and hybrid perovskites is one of the pivotal research fields. Main issue is the understanding of the processes and physical properties lying at the root of these devices in order to improve their efficiency. The aim of the activity is the development of material at the nanometer scale to generate new photovoltaic materials and systems that could potentially lead to the realization of low-cost solar cells.

The research program will focus on solution-processing of innovative solar cells, and addresses the following topics:

  1. The preparation of novel organic/inorganic composites
  2. The development of new deposition techniques and approaches to the fabrication and optimization of device architectures. 
  3. The study of physical, electrical and morphological properties of such materials/devices.

Fellow Position – Fabrication of large area photoelectrochemical cells

THIS POSITION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

BC 68499

The Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (CBN@UniLE) in Lecce is activating a procedure for the selection of n. 1 Fellow position to work in the framework of the national project “MAAT”  (PON R&C 2007-2013 -  n. 713/Ric. 29/10/2010 –project’s title: Molecular NAnotechnology for HeAlth and EnvironmenT “MAAT”; project’s code PON02_00563_3316357; CUP: B31C12001230005; PI: Prof. Giuseppe Gigli )

In 2009 IIT started up a multifaceted line of strategic research activities on dye sensitized solar cells (DSCs) that covers a wide range of scientific and technological issues from the understanding of physical phenomena at nanoscale to the development of large scale solutions for building integration. This research line has been structured to address the most crucial and meaningful aspects concerning fabrication technologies and cell architectures as well as to provide an accurate analysis of both the electric and electrochemical key features of the DSCs.

In this framework, in collaboration with project leader and senior researchers, the successful candidate will set-up, plan and carry out the experimental work necessary for the photoelectrochemical devices fabrication and characterization while being part of a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers.

The main aim of the work will be to extract the best performances for new class of materials which are going to be developed in the lab, to set-up and optimize suitable deposition techniques to fabricate large area modules and to test device stability under heat and light soaking conditions.

The successful candidate will operate in a world-class laboratory equipped with a full spectrum of both fabrication and characterization facilities devoted to the realization of novel photoelectrochemical devices and to their photophysical, electrical and electrochemical characterization. 

Good team working skills in an international environment are also required as well as fluent speaking and writing skills in English, which is essential. Travelling abroad is part of the research work and could include some period of time spent in a different city/country.

Post-doc position in light-matter interactions in semiconductor nanostructures

THIS POSITION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

BC: 68449

The Center for Biomolecular Nanotechnologies of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (CBN@UniLE-http://cbn.iit.it/) in Lecce is activating a procedure for the selection of n. 1 Post-doc position  to work in the framework of the national project “MAAT”  (PON R&C 2007-2013 -  n. 713/Ric. 29/10/2010 –project’s title: Molecular NAnotechnology for HeAlth and EnvironmenT “MAAT”; Nanotecnologie molecolari per la salute dell'uomo e l'ambiente; project’s code PON02_00563_3316357; CUP: B31C12001230005; PI: Prof. Giuseppe Gigli )

The successful candidate will deal with theoretical modeling of metallic nanostructures in which plasmonic resonances would couple strongly with organic and inorganic semiconductors, with the aim of realizing efficient light localization for novel plasmonic devices, to the limit of single photon effects.

The Advanced Photonic Group at CBN is currently aiming to recruit one talented, energetic, strongly motivated and experienced young researcher. The recently born institute is equipped with state of the art laboratories for material growth and processing, spectroscopic characterization and transport measurements.

In particular, the Advanced Photonics Group is working on the study of all-optical devices for signal processing, which is increasingly getting a huge interest due to the limit reached by electronic components in terms of heat dissipation capacity and energy consumption. Moreover the fast data rate and wide bandwidth of photonic signals compared to their electronic counterparts see the need for all optical processing that do not require hybrid electronic/optical conversion elements. In this context the use of particles made by strongly coupling light with matter (polaritons) show the advantage of having very strong non-linearities while keeping energy losses at minimum and yet maintaining all the properties of photonic signals.
