Bachelor Thesis: Development of efficient zone plates for XUV imaging
With a staff of 4700, Forschungszentrum Jülich - a member of the Helmholtz Association of German National Research Centres - is one of the largest interdisciplinary research centres in Europe.
Our research interest is the laser-induced demagnetization of ferromagnets, which we examine with femtosecond time-resolution and element-selectivity using extreme ultraviolet radiation ranging from 20 eV to 70 eV. One important ingredient of an imaging experiment in XUV spectral range is a zone plate with low absorption in XUV.
We’re looking for a motivated Bachelor student, who constructs Si-membranes with varying thicknesses in our cleanroom facilities. These membranes will be used a substrates for transmission, optical elements like gratings and zone plates for spectral characterization of the HHG light and imaging experiments.
- Student in physics
- Good knowledge of solid state physics is desirable
High motivation for working in cleanroom facilities
What we offer
- Experienced and friendly research team
- Excellent experimental equipment (in cleanroom and Laserlab)
- Working and learning in a great research environment
