Scopul nostru este sprijinirea şi promovarea cercetării ştiinţifice şi facilitarea comunicării între cercetătorii români din întreaga lume.
Be in the forefront of nanotube technology, high temperature superconductivity, biomedical applications and solar harvesting!
The job entails:
Synthesis of controlled property single-walled nanotubes of carbon, boron and gallium nitride. We have a templating process that allows tuning of mean diameter with a very narrow diameter distribution. We have demonstrated structure/chirality control over a range of diameters is our goal and we have demonstrated the ability to selectively eliminate tubes from the sample and achieve one main tube in a sample, not just for one diameter, but over a range.
Boron nanotubes (we are the only group in the world to produce these) are being developed for super conductor applications and cancer treatment. GaN nanotubes (only group to produce GaN SWNT) are being developed for electronic applications and as a catalyst support for photo catalytic production of hydrogen.
Expertise with TEM analysis is essential and experience with NIR and Raman spectroscopies is useful. The salary range is $38-48K per year depending on experience. Selected publications are listed below.
