Job descripition:
The Institute of Nuclear Research (ATOMKI) intends to contribute to the fusion programme by developing of a highly sensitive tritium calorimeter designed for large (up to 50 litres) samples for ITER applications, such as tritium storage uranium beds, plasma-facing structural components of fusion reactors, tritium shipping containers after unloading, etc. Developing an electronic control and a data acquisition system including digital signal processing for a detection limit of 1 µW is a challenging duty. The ATOMKI makes a leading attempt to develop extremely sensitive temperature derivative sensors in order to make possible the measurement of large samples with high heat capacities. The trainee will be involved in this R&D topic. In the ATOMKI she/he will participate, on the one hand, in the measurement of tritium in different ways. On the other hand, she/he will be involved in sensitive measurements of very tiny currents and voltages so that she/he is familiar in such electronic measurements that are crucial for producing sensitive calorimeters.
Qualification:
University diploma or master degree in physics or chemistry. Knowledge in informatics, or electronics. Good English language skills.
Contract duration: Three years
Starting date: From 01/07/2009 to 01/09/2009
Application up to: 5th June 2009
Contact person: Dr. József Molnár (jmolnar at atomki.hu; +3652509200)
