Description de la Direction

The topological spintronics's team aims at manipulating spins currents in nanostructures, in particular in quantum materials with Dirac fermions, such as topological insulators or Weyl semimetals, or at oxide interfaces. Some important aspects of future spintronics devices, such as the efficient spin-charge interconversion at interfaces or the ballistic transport of spin states for quantum interconnects, are studied by magneto-transport measurements.

Description de l'unité

CEA is a French public research organization that stands at the crossroad between fundamental and applied research. PHELIQS is one of the 10 laboratories of the CEA Interdisciplinary Research Institute of Grenoble (CEA-IRIG), which gathers around 1200 researchers in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, and health.

Description de l'offre

Spintronics devices involve ferromagnetic elements with high switching energies. Contrastingly, the polarization of ferroelectrics can be easily switched by an electric field, at energies typically 1000 times lower. As recently demonstrated by Intel, this makes ferroelectrics good candidates for ultralow-power post-CMOS logic[1].

We recently demonstrated in a Nature article that combined with high spin-orbit coupling elements, ferroelectrics have also a natural potential to generate an electrically-switchable, highly efficient spin-charge interconversion[2], that can be used to develop new ferroelectric devices. We are currently building a start-up through a valorization project based on these discoveries.

[2] Noël, Attané, Vila et al., Nature 580.7804 (2020): 483-486.

The job consist in developing the design of these devices and of the surrounding environment, in close interaction with the experimental team.

Ferroelectric/spintronics materials are among the leading candidates for achieving attojoule-class logic gates for computing, which would enable the continuation of Moore’s law for transistor scaling.

We are looking for a candidate with a profile oriented towards circuit conception and design. The engineer will benefit from the expertise of the Design team of the Spintec Laboratory in developing AI neuromorphic solutions based on innovative spintronics devices.  He will also work in close collaboration with the experimental team developing the devices, and in particular with PhDs aiming at using this technology as memories. He will benefit from the existence of a large collective momentum in our teams towards the development and integration of these devices, with ongoing ANR and EU projects, and more importantly with a valorization project aiming at creating a start-up based on this technology. 

Profil du candidat

Beginners welcome, providing that they possess an engineering diploma or a M2 diploma in microelectronics/physics.

 

Any experience with CAD environment (Cadence, H-Spice, Verilog-A…) and/or knowledge of magnetic/ferroelectric device physics and integration is an advantage.

 

Imagination, inventiveness, interest towards innovative microelectronics applications, and towards intellectual property creation. Possible will to pursue a career in a start-up environment.
