Positions with NanoLund research groups (right now: 3)

Solid State Physics Postdoctor in Nanolithography (PA2019/1454)
The goal of the project is to develop and study advanced lithographic methods, which can combine both nanoimprint (NIL) and block-copolymer (BCP) lithography to be used for a controllable growth of III-V nanowires (NWs) for applications in electronic and optical devices. In particular, studies will be performed using NIL and electron beam patterning to realize directed self-assembly (DSA) of BCP for templates for epitaxial growth of NWs with sub-20 nm dimensions. High-resolution pattern transfer, using reactive ion and/or atomic layer etching, will be developed within the framework of this project.
