Description

Job description

The postdoctoral project will focus on advanced studies of optical and electronic properties of InGaN/GaN quantum wells and LEDs. The emphasis is on the experimental work, which will be performed using time-resolved spectroscopy and scanning near-field optical microscopy, and a combination of those. Project results will lead to a deeper understanding of carrier dynamics in these materials and contribute to the development of highly efficient LEDs emitting in the green to red spectral regions. The project will also include modelling and result presentation in the form of journal publications and conference presentations.
