LK-05 Researcher in Ferroelectric and Multiferroic and Thin Films
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
Tyndall National Institute is a leading European research centre in integrated ICT (Information and Communications Technology) hardware and systems, specialising in both electronics and photonics – materials, devices, circuits and systems. We are currently leading research programmes funded by the Royal Society and Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) focussing on the development and optimisation of ferroelectric and multiferroic materials, aligning with Tyndall’s ‘CMOS++’ mission of developing ‘Deep Tech Innovation’ for next generation ICT.
As miniaturisation of electronic devices continues, existing data storage technologies are approaching their physical storage limitations. Multiferroic materials possess simultaneous ferroelectric and ferromagnetic memory states, allowing for novel ways of manipulating data and storing information. The unique advantage of these advanced materials is that a technology that exploits simultaneous ferroelectric and ferromagnetic memory states allows for multi-state storage devices. Furthermore, the ability to tailor multivalued logic will enable unique operations in future neuromorphic computing systems. No such devices presently exist however, as single-phase room temperature multiferroics are exceedingly rare and their material properties are currently limited. Therefore, the design and development of a unique room temperature multiferroic material was a significant output of our recent research at Tyndall. While earlier work focused on non-epitaxial approximately 100 nm-thick films, the overarching aim of our current research is to demonstrate room temperature magnetoelectric multiferroic behaviour at device-relevant thicknesses (sub 10 nm).
We now wish to hire a Postdoctoral Researcher in Ferroelectric and Multiferroic Thin film material development.
