Bachelor Thesis: Development of efficient zone plates for XUV imaging

Advertising institute: PGI-6 - Electronic Properties
Reference number: D058/2012, Physics

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.

Job description
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.

Your Profile

  • 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

Please send your application (including CV) by email to Prof. Dr. C. M. Schneider ( and to Dr. Roman Adam (
