Postdoc Position in “Pico-Scale Plasmonics” University of Twente

The Department of Molecules and Materials, Faculty of Science & Technology, at the University of Twente is offering a postdoctoral research position in “Pico-Scale Plasmonics”.

The aim of this position is to develop a platform to electrically excite plasmons in extremely small cavities. These devices benefit from extreme field enhancements that can be used to catalyze reactions and simultaneously follow them with SERS at the single-molecule level without the need for external light sources. Such devices will also enable us to address open questions regarding light-matter interaction under these extreme conditions.

Duration: 2-3 years
