Modern nanoscience approaches the atomic scale: Individual atoms, rather than ensembles, carry the functionalities of man-made devices (switching, storing, calculating, catalyzing, etc). While single-atom imaging is routine since the advent of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM) in the ‘80s, their chemical identification is difficult. My interdisciplinary ERC consolidator project "Single atom radio frequency fingerprinting (SARF)" develops a “6th sense” that turns the STM from an imaging- to an identification tool with atomic resolution. My group develops radio-frequency scanning tunneling microscopy and -spectroscopy at cryogenic temperatures (typically 5 K). The PhD work will focus on investigating fundamental quantum excitations in individual functional molecules adsorbed on single-crystal surfaces. If you have a strong background in scanning tunneling microscopy and plan to do a PhD in a young an fast improving research field, you are welcome to apply for this position. I'm particluarily seeking self-driven, enthusiastic and talented experimental physicist.
