PhD position: Puzzling out h-BN optics by high space, energy and momentum resolution spectro-microscopy

Context

Atomic defects play a key role in defining the ultimate optical properties of semi­conducting materials but the precise correlation of their structure and chemistry with spe­cific spectral features remains a challenging task. Recent developments in aberration corrected scanning transmission electron microscopes (STEM) have provided new tools to tackle this problem allowing to achieve the sub-Angstrom space resolution both in imaging and spec­troscopy. Still, spectro-microscopy of defects in standard 3D semi­conductors is strongly hin­dered by deep embedding into the bulk matrix. On the contrary, bi-di­mensional layered semi-conductors represent opti­mal model systems since they associate re­markable optical properties to a reduced di­mensionality which allows to address individual atoms. Among this class of materials, hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) presents a unique com­bination of a layered wide indi­rect band gap and a strong luminescence in the far UV due to excitons strongly cou­pled with phonon modes.
