researcher position at CRHEA(11/2017)

Le Crhea CRHEA is looking for candidates for a permanent researcher position at CRHEA, in the frame of the 2018 CNRS recruitment campaign. A profile such as “Epitaxy of Semiconductors”, with a possible but not mandatory focus on “topological insulators” is desired. Alternatively, “epitaxy of functional oxydes” is also a profile of interest for CRHEA. Contact : Jean-Yves Duboz (director) or any other CRHEA researcher the candidate might know.

«Nanostructures of band gap semiconductors - Nanostrukturierte Halbleiter mit Bandlückenmodulationen (11/2017)

CDFA 2017 The annual Workshop of the Franco-German doctoral college CDFA-05-06 was held at CRHEA on Friday, November 10, 2017. Students and researchers from the University of Bochum (Germany) and CRHEA met in Valbonne to tackle scientific topics ranging from quantum dots to non-linear optics via zinc oxide or graphene. You can discover the pictures here and here. See you in 2018 in Bochum!
