The AG Weinelt studies ultrafast surface dynamics and femtomagnetism using ultrashort laser pulses. We have a strong background and reputation in state-selective and spin-sensitive time- and angle-resolved photoemission techniques. Pump-probe experiments allow us to determine the transient electronic structure, spin polarization, and magnetization of thin films and surfaces. We study electron scattering, spin transport, ultrafast demagnetization, and magnetic switching initiated by tuneable optical femtosecond laser pulses.
Job description: Your area of responsibility involves a project on spin-dependent electron dynamics and femtomagnetism funded by the DFG through the Collaroborative Research Center (CRC) on Ultrafast Spin Dynamics. You will help to unravel the microscopic processes behind electron, lattice, and spin interactions in 3d transition and 4f rare earth metals and investigate the transient band structure, spindependent carrier lifetimes and the transient spin polarization. This is done by using femtosecond light pulses for spin-, time-, and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy. You will learn to operate complex femtosecond laser systems and an ultrahigh-vacuum apparatus for sample preparation and photoemission studies. You are willing to work in a small team of PhD students and to assume and accept responsibility. You are given the opportunity to undertake doctoral research and expected to participate in the Graduate School of the CRC.
Requirements: Completed university studies with a Master degree preferentially in physics.
Job expiriences: Experience in at least one of the following areas: femtosecond laser spectroscopy, optics, surface physics, magnetism.
Desirable: Master or diploma work in experimental physics; experience with ultrafast spectroscopy; experience with ultra-high-vacuum experiments; experience with magnetization and spin dynamics.
All applications quoting the reference code should be addressed no later than July 2nd, 2018 to Dr. Martin Weinelt: email@example.com or by post to Freie Universität Berlin, Fachbereich Physik, Institut für Experimentalphysik, Herrn Prof. Dr. Martin Weinelt, Arnimallee 14, 14195 Berlin (Dahlem).
