Master Thesis Project: Dielectric polymer nanocomposites

Job Offer from August 22, 2019

Dielectric polymer nanocomposites with high relative permittivity, high-k, have considerable application potential in energy storage and microelectronic devices such as transistors, because of their ease of processing, flexibility, and low cost. Core–shell nano-architecture strategies offer a versatile yet a powerful method for the design and synthesis of advanced high-k polymer nanocomposites. Among these strategies, in-situ formation of polymeric shells on initiator-functionalized nanoparticle’s surface using controlled/living radical polymerization, such as atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), is powerful technique for well-controlled synthesis of core-shell nanoparticle.

In this project, we would like to synthesis different polymers for High-k nanocomposite application.

Requirements

We are looking for a highly motivated student with a background in, organic chemistry, polymer science or related fields with hands-on synthesis, to carry out the following tasks:

  • to synthesis the polymers using ATRP, analyze and interpret the results
  • to perform electrical characterizations and evaluate different processing/device.

Candidates should send their application electronically containing an application letter, CV, diploma/degree/mark sheet (official transcript), and reference letters to Dr. Kamal Asadi, email: asadi@mpip-mainz.mpg.de Applications will be considered until the position is filled.
