PhD Position / University Assistant (m/f/d)
40 hours/week, for 4 years, starting presumably on March 1st, 2022
Crystallisation of molecules at surfaces is a process where the growth kinetics can be varied in a large range. As a consequence, new unknown polymorphs can be observed, these phases can have specific technological relevant properties. The PhD project is related to the effect of chiral symmetry breaking due to crystallization at surfaces. Molecules which show chiral symmetry breaking (molecules which can take both types of chirality) will be deposited at defined surfaces by physical vapour deposition. For that purpose, a specific thin film deposition system working under high vacuum conditions have to be constructed and adapted. In a subsequent step the chirality of the molecular crystals has to be proven. For that purpose, resonant (or anomalous) X-ray diffraction experiments have to be performed. The goal of the project is to develop a crystallization method for a defined molecule / substrate combination which allows a defined chiral symmetry breaking.
