  • The Nanospectroscopy undulator beamline delivers elliptically polarized photons in the 25 - 1000 eV energy range to an end-station equipped with a spectroscopic photoemission and low energy electron microscope (SPELEEM). This instrument offers a wide range of complementary methods providing structural, chemical and magnetic sensitivity with lateral resolution nearing ten nanometers. The energy analyser has been recently upgraded and provides state-of-the-art spectroscopic performance.

    The research carried out at the beamline focuses on the electronic and magnetic properties of micro- and nanostructured materials, covering the fields of surface science, surface chemistry, and magnetism. Experiments are performed exploiting the combination of different techniques based on photoemission spectroscopy, absorption spectroscopy and electron microscopy. The end-station and beamline capabilities are constantly upgraded, in order to meet the most challenging experimental needs. Comprehensive information on these activities can be found at:

    Job description

    The successful candidate will be involved in the study of the electronic and magnetic properties of various heterostructures composed of 2D materials, organic molecules and magnetic thin films. Samples of the materials under study will be grown by molecular beam epitaxy and characterized in vacuum with the x-ray beam using photoemission spectromicroscopy, low energy electron microscopy and diffraction. The research activity will be carried out in collaboration with the beamline staff and its users. She/he will contribute to the maintenance and upgrade of the beamline. She/he is expected to propose and develop research independently.

    Qualifications

    A master degree in physics, chemistry or a related discipline is required. Having obtained a PHD in the above disciplines or having completed the relevant course of study will be considered preferential. Applicants' experience will be evaluated relative to their career status.

    Proven experience in at least two of the following techniques is required (please indicate relevant publications or thesis):

  • X-ray photoemission electron microscopy
  • X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and/or angle-resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy (ARPES)
  • X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS, XMCD, XMLD)
  • The following qualifications will be considered desirable assets:

  • Previous participation in experiments at synchrotron radiation facilities
  • Research background in the study of metalorganic/metal interfaces
  • Research background in the study of self-assembled monolayers and ultra- thin film growth
  • Proven experience in ARPES and photoemission tomography
  • Proven experience in XPS and/or ARPES data processing
  • Programming skills in Igor Pro
  • The successful candidate should possess strong interpersonal skills favouring collaborative research programs in a team-oriented environment.

    Good time management skills and ability to prioritize are expected, together with the ability to interact with the facility staff and international users at all levels and to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. Good oral and written communication skills in English are essential.
