  • Twisted layers graphene has shown to offer amazing electronic properties at the magic angle, with strong correlations physics, superconductivity and Mott Insulator transitions. These quantum properties rely on the particular localization effects at the first magic angle (~1° for bilayers twisted graphen). An important open question remains: what are the properties and new physics emerging at the higher order magic angles? One way to reach them is by application of high pressure, by changing the interlayer coupling.

    The main objective of this PhD project is to reach such magic angles using high pressure in diamond anvils cell. The PhD student will perform Raman spectroscopy and electron transport measurements in diamond anvils cells, using cryogenic systems. He/She will work at Néel Institute in collaboration with two teams, one expert in 2D materials for fabrication and their electronic and vibrational properties, the other expert in high pressure and strong correlations physics. Superconductivity will be checked in particular, and the role of phonons and strong correlations on this unconventional superconductivity will be investigated.

    We are looking for motivated candidates for this PhD position at the Néel Institute in France to apply to the Marie-Curie CoFUND call (Cf. https: // www. for more details). Application deadline is the 7th of October. We then encourage you to contact us before the end of the September to build the full project together.


    For additionnal information, Cf. https: // www.

    It will be possible to start before the 1st of February 2023 if successful to the application.
