Field of Research
Subjects Theoretical Physics / Solid State Physics Description In the group of Prof. Martin Garcia (University of Kassel) there is a vacant PhD position in the framework of the DFG-funded project "Surface Modification of Silicon at the Nanometer Scale". The group of Prof. Garcia has many years of experience in modelling laser-material interactions and is a world leader in the development of high-precision interatomic potentials to describe laser excitation using machine-learning methods. The group has excellent computing resources (including its own computer cluster with GPUs) and access to high performance computing facilities in Germany.
The successful candidate is expected to develope, using machine-learning methods, a model to describe the femtosecond laser pulse excitation of a silicon surface on experimentally achievable length and time scales. The dynamics of the atomic lattice, the bonding electrons and the laser- generated free electron-hole pairs are to be determined, taking into account the electron-phonon coupling and the surface plasmons excited by the laser pulse.
