The Institute of Electronic Structure and LASER (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH), in the frame of the project «NILES» which is an “ARISTEIA” Action which is part of the action "Education and Lifelong Learning", which is part of the action "Education and Lifelong Learning" and is co‐financed by the European Union (the European Social Fund) and national funds, is seeking for one (1) PhD student.



Abstract

ARISTEIES

The purpose of the project is to provide innovative solutions utilizing semiconductor nanowires for the development of low-cost and ultra-efficient nanowire solar cells and nanowire-pumped organic LEDs. The successful candidate is expected to work on modeling and simulation of new designs of III-V nanowire heterostructures as well as on theoretical aspects of resonant energy transfer between inorganic nanostructures and organic molecules.
