Developments and applications in nanoelectronics of novel Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy with chromium excitation

Published : 28 September 2019

The CEA LETI seeks to recruit a post-doctoral researcher to work on the development of advanced analytical methodologies in Hard X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (HAXPES). The candidate will work on a novel HAXPES instrument (only three available in Europe to date) equipped with a monochromatic CrK? source. The research project will be focused around the following topics:

• Quantification (empirical determination of elemental Relative Sensitivity Factors),

• Study of multilayer samples (data for the development of thin film algorithms),

• Study of deeply buried, critical interfaces in nanoelectronics.

The candidate will also have access to the wide range of state of the art instruments present on the nanocharacterisation platform as well as bespoke samples coming from the advanced technology branches developed at the LETI. The candidate will also benefit from a collaboration with the instrument supplier.
