A postdoc position position in modeling 2D heterostructures for solar cells and tunnel field-effect transistors is available at the Department of Physics of Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden.

An increasing demand for sustainable, energy-efficient, and environmentally-friendly devices necessitates the use of novel and inherently sustainable materials at the smallest scales. Consequently, there has been an active search for innovative and inherently sustainable materials at the nanoscale level in recent years. Among the most promising materials are atomically thin two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors, specifically transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) such as MoS2 and WSe2. These materials hold great potential in applications such as solar cells for energy harvesting and tunnel-field effect transistors for energy-efficient computing and data storage. The success of these 2D materials in such applications is deeply connected to their electronic and atomic properties.

The present project aims to explore the heterostructures of 2D materials for all-2D field-effect transistors and solar cells using first-principles modeling. This project will be conducted in close collaboration with experimentalists at the MC2 department at Chalmers and will help in the development of cutting-edge, sustainable devices.
