Hands-on experience
  • Production and characterization of the paramagnetic point defects induced by doping and/or irradiation
  • Multi-frequency Electron Paramagnetic Resonance - EPR (X- (9 GHz), Q- (34 GHz) and W-band (95 GHz)) and Electron Nuclear Double Resonance - ENDOR (X- and Q-band) spectroscopy of the point defects in single crystals and nanostructures at variable temperatures: from RT down to 2 K
  • Computational analysis of the EPR and ENDOR spectra
  • XRD measurements and computational (Rietveld) analysis
  • Pulsed laser deposition and processing of thin films
