Doctoral Grant (BOF), Structure sorting and advanced optical spectroscopy of Carbon Nanotubes - 2019BAPDOCPROEX193Posted by: University of Antwerp
Posted date: 2019-Jul-18
The Faculty of Sciences is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy in the Department of Physics for a
Doctoral Grant by the University Research Fund (BOF) in the area of structure sorting and advanced optical spectroscopy of Carbon Nanotubes
The ECM group is a multidisciplinary team that combines innovative processing and separation techniques for carbon nanotubes with state-of-the-art spectroscopic equipment, such as tunable wavelength high-resolution resonant Raman spectroscopy and wavelength-dependent fluorescence-excitation spectroscopy and imaging.

Within this project you will combine state-of-the-art separation techniques (density gradient ultracentrifugation and aqueous two-phase extraction) with advanced spectroscopic characterisation of the carbon nanotubes to unravel the sorting mechanisms of carbon nanotubes and extend their separation protocols to any other chirality.
