Selection of specific topics available

29.03.2019: Master thesis: Superconductivity in graphene

Currently we are looking for motivated students for a master thesis on superconductivity in graphene multilayers. During your thesis, you will partially work in a clean room and and learn to prepare and characterize 2D material samples. To electrically contact your sample, you will use various nanofabrication methods such as electron beam lithography and reactive ion etching. Additionally you will work with a state-of-the-art cryostat system to investigate superconductivity and other quantum transport phenomena at temperatures as low as 7 mK. Great interest in semiconductor and nanophysics as well as experimental work are crucial for this thesis. Previous knowledge in semiconductor physics is helpful but not prerequisite. If we caught your attention, we would be happy to receive your application together with a transcript of records at Thomas.Weitz@lmu.de

29.03.2019: Master thesis: Organic sensors

Due to their large surface to volume ratio, nanoscopic organic materials are ideal candidates to be used as highly precise sensors. This master thesis will be dedicated to the largest challenge of organic sensors: their selectivity and cross talk to other analytes. If we caught your attention, we would be happy to receive your application together with a transcript of records at Thomas.Weitz@lmu.de
