Dual PhD degree ,Plasma Induced Incorporation of Single Metal Atoms in 2D Materials , UK and Taiwan

Description: This is the Dual PhD degree programme (4 years) between The National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan and The University of Liverpool, England. As a result, students are in the unique position to gain 2 PhD awards from two internationally recognized world-leading Universities. The project targets to develop single metal atom incorporation or doping by plasma functionalization into 2D materials like transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD), Mxene, and 2D metal-organic frameworks (2D MOFs).Its helps in energy storage, gas sensing, electrochemistry, and catalysis.

At The National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), Taiwan

  • Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) and Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition (PECVD) techniques will be used to fabricate a range of advanced 2D materials in single and multilayer form.
  • Then layers will be optimized and tested for stability.
  • Surface characterization, high resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of the 2D materials will be done.
  • Also tested for their applicability in energy applications.

Meanwhile, the student has the opportunity to undertake NTHU postgraduate courses (Solid-state thermodynamics, Kinetics processes of materials and Transmission electron microscopy / X-ray crystallography).

At The University of Liverpool, England-

  • Research including the development of both vacuum-based and atmospheric-pressure plasma discharges for the treatment and chemical functionalization of NTHU produced 2D materials.
  • The techniques will be proposed to incorporate single metal atoms in 2D materials in a controlled way.
  • Optimisation and characterisation of the plasmas using a diagnostic tool with optical emission spectroscopy, electrical probing and energy-resolved mass spectrometry.
  • Quantitative information on concentrations and energies of the plasma species.
  • Finally the resultant plasma functionalized 2D materials will be tested in real-world applications.
