New openings

Postdoc (or visiting scientist) in optical and spin-resonance spectroscopy of organic semiconductors

Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology in Linköping University, Sweden, seeks for a highly motivated researcher to fill in an opening of a postdoc (or a visiting scientist) position in optical and spin-resonance spectroscopy of organic semiconductors. The research topics involve the physics of charge generation, recombination, extraction, and related spin-dependent processes, which are relevant to applications in organic photovoltaics and organic light-emitting devices. Good knowledge and education background on organic semiconductor physics is required for the position. Experiences in optical spectroscopy (photoluminescence (PL) and electro-luminescence (EL)) and in spin-resonance techniques (electron spin resonance (ESR) and optically detected magnetic resonance (ODMR) are preferred but not required. The period of employment is 1-2 years, which is negotiable, with a possibility of further career development if the candidate has earned outstanding achievements during the first appointment. The salary level depends on qualification.

The interested candidates are invited to send CV, a publication list and names of at least two references, who will provide recommendation letters if required, to

Prof. Weimin M. Chen
Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology
Linköping University
581 83 Linköping

e-mail: wmc@ifm.liu.se .

Applications will be considered immediately until the position is filled.

Examensarbet / Diploma Work / Master Thesis Project: Spin properties of semiconductor nanostructures

Division of Functional Electronic Materials, Department of Physics, Chemistry and Biology, Linkoping University, Sweden, offers a highly motivated student to do a research project on spin properties of semiconductor nanostructures, leading to a Diploma/Master thesis. The project will focus on experimental studies of intriguing spin properties of InAs/GaAs quantum dots, such as spin injection and spin detection that are relevant to future room-temperature spintronics, by optical and magneto-optical spectroscopies.


Undergraduate education in physics, applied physics or engineering, and a proven record of excellent grades.

Starting date: immediately available

The interested candidates are invited to send CV and a list of courses taken with the corresponding grades to Prof. Weimin Chen (e-mail: wmc@ifm.liu.se).
