Master’s Rotation Duration: 3 year(s)
Studying electronic and spin properties of organic-inorganic interfaces
More Information
We are studying the interaction of electrons with organic and bio-molecules applying various methods like laser spectroscopy, photoemission spectroscopy and transport (conduction). We produce hybrid supra-molecular structures that involve nanoparticles and chiral molecules and produce spin based devices. For recent references please see: 1. B. G?hler,V. Hamelbeck, T.Z. Markus, M. Kettner, G.F. Hanne, Z. Vager, R. Naaman, H. Zacharias, Spin Selectivity in Electron Transmission Through Self-Assembled Monolayers of dsDNA, Science 331, 894-897 (2011). 2. Zouti Xie, Tal Z. Markus, Sidney R. Cohen, Zeev Vager, Rafael Gutierrez, Ron Naaman, Spin specific electron conduction through DNA oligomers, Nano Letters, 11, 4652?4655 (2011).
MSc Duration: 1 year(s)
Starts: 2015-07-01
We would like to have excellent students that are interested in interdisciplinary research that involves nano-structures and the study of their electronic and spin properties.
