  • Epitaxial growth and spin-resolved band structure characterization of 2D semiconductors

    The group of Prof. Alexander Grüneis starts from November 2022 at the

    Institute for Solid State Electronics of TU Wien and works on novel 2D semiconductors. The

    large spin-orbit coupling in several 2D semiconductors and the lack of an

    inversion center in the unit cell result in spin-polarized electron energy bands.

    Such a band structure is interesting for new concepts in electronics (e.g.

    valleytronics or spintronics) and may be modified upon interaction with a 2D

    ferromagnet. One of the strongest experimental methods to probe these

    interactions directly is spin-resolved photoemission spectroscopy.

    In the course PhD thesis that is offered here, we would like to build up and

    operate an ultra-high vacuum system that can be used to grow and to

    characterize 2D semiconductor-ferromagnet interfaces. The PhD work involves

    participation in the re-assembly of a working spin-ARPES system and requires

    some basic knowledge in semiconductor physics, an interest to learn UHV

    techniques and computer programming.
