Current Job Openings at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials

Postdoctoral Research Associate - Electronic Nanomaterials (6492) — The Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN) at Brookhaven National Laboratory is currently soliciting applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Electronic Nanomaterials group.The research involves fabrication of nanostructured materials with optical and electronic properties designed for efficient photovoltaic energy conversion. In particular, this project explores strategies for using the plasmonic and photonics properties of metals in new solar cell device architectures. This project is laboratory-intensive; much of the work involves device fabrication, material characterization, and measurements of device electrical and optical properties.The qualified candidate will have a Ph.D. in an appropriate discipline (Physics, Electrical Engineering, or Materials Science), and significant experience with thin-film fabrication of nanostructured materials and devices. Most importantly, candidates must have a solid foundation in optical and electrical device measurement, and display a strong knowledge of condensed matter physics in order to understand and interpret such measurements. Expertise in characterization and analysis of nanometer-scale materials, including electron microscopy, is also important. The successful applicant will demonstrate an ability to work collaboratively with other scientists within broadly defined research directions.Under the direction of C. Black, Center for Functional Nanomaterials.BNL policy states that research associate appointments may be made to individuals who have received their doctorate within the past five years. BNL is an equal opportunity employer committed to ensuring that all qualified applicants receive consideration for employment and will not be discriminated against on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, or protected veteran status. BNL takes affirmative action in support of its policy and to advance in employment individuals who...

Paper battery?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Ordinary paper could one day be used as a lightweight battery to power the devices that are now enabling the printed word to be eclipsed by e-mail, e-books and online news.
Scientists at Stanford University in California reported on Monday they have successfully turned paper coated with ink made of silver and carbon nanomaterials into a "paper battery" that holds promise for new types of lightweight, high-performance energy storage.
The same feature that helps ink adhere to paper allows it to hold onto the single-walled carbon nanotubes and silver nanowire films
