Postdoc: Study of compound semiconductors ionizing radiation detectors

Universidad de la República-ANII


Field: Compound semiconductors ionizing radiation detectors. Highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a position within a postdoctoral program that integrates physics, chemistry and materials science. Purpose and overview: The work will be focused on the study of electric properties (I-V Curves, mu-tau product), radiation response (spectrometry), and charge collection efficiency of different detectors constructed with compound semiconductors. In this Project a novel generation of compound semiconductors detectors will be developed using nanotechnolgy, and the results will be compared with detectors constructed with oriented crystalline films. The Institution is a new thriving Centre developed by Universidad de la República, constructed in 2012, located at 200 km from Montevideo, the Capital of the Country.
