Detecting and monitoring the optical properties of a nano-system has important applications in physics, chemistry and biology. It often requires an understanding of physical phenomena taking place in a nano-system upon light excitation.
In the framework of a project financed by the French national agency ANR, we offer 18 months postdoc position aimed to the experimental investigation of gold and silver nanoparticles on which organometallic complexes are grafted. Your mission will consist in characterizing the modification of the optical properties (absorption and luminescence) of these nanoparticles in solution during their excitation by femtosecond and picosecond pulses whose spectrum will be centered in the UV, visible and infrared range. The activity will be developed in close collaboration with groups of chemists in France, participating in the project.
The candidate should have a PhD in time resoled optical spectroscopy physics in condensed matter.
Our group as a long-standing activity in time resolved spectroscopy of nano-systems. The candidate will be integrated in the Photonics and Materials group of the LOMA, in a dynamic and active community. The Bordeaux site is part of the excellence initiative IDEX, and offers an ideal environment for developing this research. Interested candidates can apply by email to eric.freysz at u-bordeaux.fr.
