Postdoctoral Position in 2D Optoelectronics

The position is focused on exploiting the recent advances of Prof. Burch in Weyl semimetals and the discovery of RuCl3 as a 2D crystalline acceptor. The postdoc will develop new strategies to enhance the detectivity and polarization sensitivity of nonlinear photocurrents in Topological Insulators, Weyl semimetals, and 2D heterostructures with RuCl3. They will create plasmonic and photonics interfaces with an eye to applications in the THz and Mid-IR.

Unique Opportunity for a Postdoctoral Fellow at Boston College: The BC physics department is a highly collaborative environment, entirely focused on Condensed Matter Research. The department has 18 active faculty working at the forefront of solid-state research in quantum materials, topology, biosensing, superconductivity, plasmonics, 2D materials, magnetism, quantum information, and computing. This includes cutting edge experimental techniques such as scanning NV, STM, MBE, NSOM, Crystal Growth, broadband optoelectronics, and spectroscopy.

Prof. Burch is a world leader in 2D materials, strong correlations, topology, and sensors. His group is a unique environment with abilities ranging from broadband FTIR, photocurrent, low Temperature/ high magnetic field Raman, transport, and tunneling. His group has built a one-of-a-kind “cleanroom in a glovebox” enabling all 2D heterostructure fabrication in an inert atmosphere with a vacuum suitcase to transfer materials between various experimental setups, including the glovebox, MBE and the photocurrent/Raman/transport setups.
