The Wrocław Doctoral School of Institutes of Polish Academy of Sciences (WDS IPAS) announces special recruitment for a Ph.D. student scholarship in IV edition of the program "Implementation doctorate I" – Theme 2: "Application of graphene oxide for construction of micro LED diodes", funded by Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland (Project ID 485802 in OSF system, Reg. no. DWD/4/40/2020), and carried out under the supervision of Prof. Wiesław Stręk the Division of Optical Spectroscopy of ILT&SR PAS in cooperation with the company Nanores Sp. z o. o. Sp. k. in Wrocław.

 

  1. Description of Theme 2:

The purpose of the implementation doctorate are studies of novel micro-diode (LED) based on graphene oxide (GO). Such GO-diodes may overcome limitations of standard LEDs. GO characterizes a high mechanical strength allowing application in elastic LED displays, resistance to high temperature and applied voltage, and color tuning. The carried studies allow the development of novel lighting systems and the broadening of the commercialization offer of Nanores Ltd.

  1. Additional information

The Ph.D. student program is performed based on the Communication of 29.05.2019 of MNiSW on the establishment of the "Implementation Doctorate" program (Communication of MNiSW) that grants the Ph.D. fellowship, defined in the Act of 20 July 2018 – Law on higher education and science (Dz.
