Chlorination Studies on 2D material doping
at ORAU Workforce Solutions

Date Posted: 5/7/2019

Opportunity Description

Title of Research Opportunity: Chlorination studies on 2D material doping for electronic applications 2D materials and van der Waals materials have become of great interest due to their promise of use in a wide range of device applications including flexible electronics, novel memory and neuromorphic devices, and use in enhancing sensors and energy storage structures. This research opportunity will study the feasibility of employing Cl plasma processes to dope 2D materials and contacts in order to modify the surface and tune properties of both monolayers as well as heterostructures. This technique could be used to reduce electrical contact resistance in electrical and optoelectronic devices, resulting in higher performance with reduced power consumption. This RO will involve the fabrication of 2D transistors and test structures using nanofabrication techniques, exposing and doping these material systems with a plasma process, and then performing x-ray spectroscopy and electrical characterization to understand the effects of the Cl plasma exposure. This research will be done in collaboration with Columbia University and the candidate will have the opportunity to collaborate closely with colleagues in New York, NY on this research. This project is restricted to U.S. Citizens only. Click here for more information

About Us

Grooming future leaders in science and technology requires enhancing the skills, knowledge and experience of workers early in their careers. To that end, ORAU (Oak Ridge Associated Universities) assists in connecting the best and most diverse students, recent graduates, faculty and professionals with world-class fellowships, internships and jobs, whether in national laboratories, research institutions, federal government offices or private sector R&D departments.

ORAU works with agencies such as the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. We work with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to place recent graduates in full-time and part-time jobs in the Office of Research and Development at EPA under the National Student Services Contract. ORAU also works with Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Data Science, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, Toxicology, and more.

If you are ready to take the next step in your career path, then we are ready to help you!
