Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­sität Ber­lin - Faculty II - Institute of Optics and Atomic Physics / Terahertz and Laser Spectroscopy

Research Assistant - 0.75 working time - salary grade E13 TV-L Berliner Hochschulen

Working field:

The research task is focusing on non-linear laser spectroscopy investigations on especially prepared and electrically contacted graphene samples. The work is part of a project within the frame of the DFG priority program „INtegrated TERahErtz sySTems Enabling Novel Functionality (INTEREST)“. The project, which is carried out with 2 project partner aims at demonstrating a new Terahertz technology platform, based on the integration of graphene with novel electronic SiGe HBT/BiCMOS chip technology. A Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy set-up for nonlinear Terahertz spectroscopy shall be further developed and optimized. Thereafter this set-up shall be utilized to investigate the suitability of differently prepared/designed graphene samples with respect to Terahertz high harmonic generation or difference frequency mixing. A part of the experiments shall be performed at different accelerator-based high-field Terahertz light sources. The experimental results shall be compared with suitable model calculations for the non-linear dynamics of the involved Dirac electrons. Possibility to prepare a PhD degree.


Successfully completed university degree (Master, Diplom or equivalent) in physics or a related field; fundamental knowledge in applied Optics; capability to work in an interdisciplinary, international team; first practical experiences in programming with Python or LabVIEW are of advantage. Good command of German and/or English is required; willingness to learn either English or German is expected.
