Post-doctoral position in printed electronics

THIS POSITION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

CB: 71673

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT-www.iit.it) was founded with the objective of promoting Italy’s technological development and further education in science and technology. Therefore, IIT is committed to achieving its scientific program which follows the primary inspirational principle of integrating basic scientific research with the development of technical applications.

The Center for Nanoscience and Technology (CNST@POLIMI) in Milan is part of the network established by IIT in close collaboration with Italian academic institutions. Research at CNST@POLIMI focuses on material science and spans the whole gamut of R&D, from conception and realization of a new material to its comprehensive characterization through to its final application in devices.

The areas of excellence at CNST@POLIMI are Material Chemistry, Molecular Optolectronics, Printed Electronics, Nanotechnology Fabrication and Optical – Photophysical - Morphological and Theoretical Characterization.

One of the leading activities carried out at CNST@POLIMI concerns Printed and Molecular Electronics and, more specifically, focuses on the development of all-printed organic-hybrid opto-electronic devices.

CNST@POLIMI is seeking 1 Post-doc to be involved in a research project focussed onPrinted Polymer and Hybrid Electronics for High-Frequency Applicationswithin the activities of the ERC project “HEROIC” (Grant Agreement 638059 – ERC 2014 STG).

The main targets will be:

  • design, fabrication and characterization of organic and hybrid complementary transistors printed on flexible substrates;
  • improvement of the frequency performances of all-printed and direct-written devices;
  • design, fabrication and characterization of fast organic and hybrid complementary integrated circuits (ICs).

The post holder will be directly involved in working within a highly multidisciplinary team, which will benefit from an expertise in printed organic electronics and organic semiconductors processing.

MC Early Stage researcher position in organic electronics and related applications

THIS POSITION IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE

CB 70663

The electronic and optical properties of conjugated polymers (CPs), that lead to applications spanning from light-emitting diodes, LEDs, to photovoltaic diodes, PVDs and field-effect transistors, FETs, and photonic applications, are controlled both by the primary molecular structure and by supramolecular interactions, just as secondary and tertiary structures are fundamental to the function of proteins. The ability to manipulate the local molecular environment and molecule-molecule contacts is crucial to access fundamentally new classes of organic functional materials with unprecedented performance. Non-covalent interactions affect properties as diverse as lasing and electrical transport, in addition to chemical and mechanical stability. Accurate control of such interactions is needed to allow optimum exploitation of molecular materials, not only in today’s most common optoelectronic devices, such as LEDs, FETs, and PVDs, but also in emerging “photonics” applications. A notable example of supramolecular control is afforded by conjugated rotaxanes that allow a high degree of control in the manipulation of the optical and photonic properties of conjugated polymers. Conjugated rotaxanes feature strongly reduced charge dissociation and polaron formation, which lead to unprecedented ultra-broad gain bands in blends of rotaxanes with emissive conjugated polymers. This result is of crucial interest to both optical amplifiers and lasers. Similarly, perylene bisimides (PBIs) are known for their outstanding fluorescence (many derivatives have quantum yields (QY) of 100%) and photostability. Crucially, by supramolecular design, in particular involvement of H-bonds, highly fluorescent J-aggregates for this class of dyes could berealized. These show fluorescence QY close to unity and exciton ranges up to 70 nm.

These show fluorescence QY close to unity and exciton ranges up to 70 nm. Hybrid organic-inorganic perovskites are also currently attracting burgeoning interest for both their extremely promising PV efficiencies (up to 15%) and optically-pumped lasing. They are also supramolecular structures, in which an organic salt (such as methylammonium iodide) is non-covalently encased in an inorganic perovskite and may provide a solution to the difficulties due to intrinsic losses from bimolecular annihilation and the conflicting requirements of high charge carrier mobility and large stimulated emission in wholly conjugated systems or to the challenges related to Auger losses and charge transport in quantum dots.

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.
