2D materials, and nanomaterials in general, pave the way to numerous applications, including in nanoelectronics. However, manipulating and integrating them is a challenge. Standard microfabrication processes involving optical/electron lithography can induce polymer residues which are detrimental to their performances. Strategies have been developed in order to manage ultra-clean samples 1 or to encapsulate the functional materials in hBN 2. 1 W. Wang, et al. arXiv preprint, arXiv:2308.13484. (2023). 2 C. Dean, et al. Nature Nanotechnology, 5(10), 722–726. (2010).
We propose here to develop a dry fabrication process for 2D-based devices. This involves a micro-transfer technique with a polymer stamp. The targeted objective is to optimise the process by using a stencil mask to realize contact electrodes. One objective will be to determine the limit resolution attainable for the devices, along with their electrical and optical characteristics. The hired postdoc will manage the fabrication process in the cleanroom, as well as the characterization involving SEM and AFM microscopy, Raman and photoluminescence spectroscopy, and electrical tests at variable temperature.
The Institut NEEL, UPR 2940 CNRS, is one of the largest French national research institutes for fundamental research in condensed matter physics enriched by interdisciplinary activities at the interfaces with chemistry, engineering and biology. It is located in the heart of a unique scientific, industrial and cultural environment. It is part of one of Europe's biggest high-tech environment in micro- and nanoelectronics, right next to the French Alpes. The job is linked to the Quan2m team, research team which works on electronic, optical, vibrational and mechanical properties of hybrid systems at the quantum scale, and the coupling between these properties. The Institut NEEL is a CNRS laboratory. CNRS is a public, scientific and technological organisation. The core mandate is to identify, carry out ou have carried out, either alone or with partners, all research that advances science or contributes to the country's economic, social, and cultural progress. Internationally recognised for the excellence of its scientific research, the CNRS is a reference in the world of research and development, as well as for the general public.Requirements
