The Manfra Group at Purdue University seeks a postdoctoral fellow to explore molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) growth of novel AlGaAs/GaAs heterostructures to be integrated into hybrid GaAs/graphene devices designed to probe non-Abelian anyons in the fractional quantum Hall regime. The person joining our team will have the opportunity to contribute to an innovative project at the forefront of study of topological phases of low-dimensional electron systems.
Dedicated experimental resources of the Manfra Group include an ultra-high mobility GaAs MBE, nanoscale device fabrication tools, and multiple dilution refrigerators for low temperature transport experiments. See http://manfragroup.org/ for more details. The person joining this effort will also have access to state-of-the-art experimental facilities at the Birck Nanotechnology Center https://www.purdue.edu/discoverypark/birck/ at Purdue University. This project is a part of the newly funded Quantum Science Center (QSC), a multi-organizational research collaboration led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory focused on developing quantum technologies. See https://qscience.org/ for more information about the center.
A Ph.D. in Physics, Materials Science or Electrical Engineering is required. The ideal candidate will have previous experience in MBE growth of III-V semiconductors. Experience in low temperature electron transport measurements in semiconductor devices is also desirable. The postdoctoral fellow joining this project will have ample opportunity to learn new physics and develop new experimental skills.
