OFFER DESCRIPTION

1- The characterization of optical and topographic properties of thin films of sensitive materials (polymers, catalytic metals) by AFM, SEM, ellipsometry.
2- The cleanroom micro-nanostructuration of thin films of sensitive materials, by usual fabrication techniques such as nano-imprint, electron-beam lithography, material deposition (metals, polymers).
3- The optical characterization of the fabricated devices by micro-reflectivity and interferometry. This step will include the implementation of a gas circulation system for sensing experiments.

The post-doc will have to develop an ultra-sensitive photonic sensor for pollutants contained in the ambient air (FEDER project). The project is motivated, on the one hand by the company demand for the development of a sensitive, high-performance and compact sensor, and on the other hand by the activities of the i-Lum team @ INL on the development of extremely-sensitive environmental sensors based on innovative photonic concepts.
The original approach taken by the i-Lum team of the INL for the realization of such a sensor consists in the association:
- Nanophotonic structures extremely sensitive to the environment and manufactured in a sensitive material (polymers and/or catalytic metals)
- An optical phase detection system (interferometry), which makes it possible to improve of the current state-of-the-art detection limits.

For this work, the post-doctoral fellow will have access to the Nanolyon facilities for the fabrication and optical characterizations. She/he will work in close collaboration with other researchers of the team for the different experimental aspects of the project.

Eligibility criteria

The nature of the proposed work being mainly experimental, the candidate must have a PhD in nanophotonics and/or material science, with experience in the fabrication of micro-nanostructures and in the optical characterization of the fabricated devices. Good writing skills, both for reports and publications, as well as scientific presentations are also expected.
