Loometöö
2013–2018 The main research activities of the research group "Nanotechnologies and Materials Science" at Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ) was related to the synthesis and study of metal nanoparticles for the development of biocidal coating and possible utilization in the field of nanomedicine (i.e. cancer treatment using the superparamagnetic properties of the metal nanoparticles synthesized). The metallic nanomaterials were also investigated for possible application in the field of water purification (extraction of heavy metal ions and radioactive elements). A UK patent was submitted. New carbon-based nanohybrid composites were also developed and studied for for energy harvesting and more particularly for the production of photocurrent under UV excitation.
See www.rauwel.eu for the detailed description of the research activities and links to the the scientific publications. (Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ), Tartu College, Tartu).
2009–2012 At the University of Oslo (2009-2012), I was in charge of a project on the improvement of catalysts used for the Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) reaction via atomic layer deposition (ALD) process in close collaboration with Statoil (Norway’s largest oil company). The goal was to improve the mechanical properties of the catalyst support used in the F-T reaction using a conformal oxide coating (ZnO, CoO…) that could only be realized via ALD. We build with Prof. Ola Nilsen a specific glass reaction chamber to meet the objectives of this project.
I was also in charge of a project on thermal imaging at very low temperatures for the study of superconductor (detection of heat point and defect during electrical measurements). For this purpose I have developed an activity that couples both thin films deposition (ALD) and metal oxide nanoparticles synthesis. Therefore, here in Oslo, I have initiated and developed a nanoparticles synthesis (metal and metal-oxide) activity using non-aqueous sol-gel chemistry.
I have managed to obtain a Marie Curie European Re-integration grant of €45000 for 3 years (consumables, patents…) that gave me financial independence to manage this activity. The submission of a proposal for developing a new process for metal nanoparticles synthesis to “inGAP competition 2009” (ranked 1st) has given me the opportunity to supervise a Post-Doctoral fellow for 7 months by obtaining funding for him (~€35000). I was the project leader of the metal nanoparticles synthesis project and developed my own process of metal nanoparticles synthesis.
(University of Oslo, Dept. of Chemistry, SMN, Oslo).
2006–2009 Following the Marie Curie project, I moved to the Department of Physics (2008-2009) where I held a postdoctoral grant from the Fundação para a Ciênca e a Tecnologia (FCT). Here I developed a new process based on the knowledge I acquired in Grenoble in the field of the replacement of SiO2 gate oxides in transistors for microelectronics by other oxides presenting higher permittivity such as HfO2. I applied this knowledge to control the oxygen stoechiometry of oxide thin films and the oxygen diffusion using RF-sputtering deposition. This process is based on the pre-deposition of a very thin magnesium layer before the deposition of the oxide thin film that enables us to grow high-k thin films and prevents the growth of the low-k (SiO2 and Si-based) interlayer usually observed. This process has been patented. Following my departure to Norway, I continued to collaborate with the University of Aveiro and more particularly with Profs. Vitor Amaral and Armando Lourenço. (University of Aveiro, CICECO, Aveiro).
During my stay at the University of Aveiro (2006-2008) I held a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship (IEF) grant (2 years of salary and ~ €20,000 for expenses) to develop a new thin films deposition activity based on ALD. The goal of this project was to build new multiferroic structures based on the combination of metal oxide nanoparticles synthesis and thin film deposition (more particularly ALD that offers the possibility to perform a conformal coating). Based on my previous experience in Grenoble, I developed a new chemical method of deposition for thin films growth using carboxylic acids as an oxidizing source. The current technique allows depositing oxides at temperatures as low as 50ºC on many type of supports: monocrystalline substrates, carbon nanotubes, cellulose, wool... and this process has been patented. I applied this process to the deposition of dielectrics thin films for microelectronic applications and on the coating of carbon nanotubes with oxide thin films (I already performed such kind of study during my stay in Grenoble in collaboration with the CRTBT) to build a new type of gas sensor device for the detection of NO2. During this period, I have had also the opportunity to work closely with persons who are specialists in nanoparticles synthesis during my stay at CICECO..
2004–2006 During this period I held a Post-Doc in Grenoble (2004-2006), France at the LMGP (Laboratoire des Matériaux et de la Génie Physique) which is now a part of Minatec. I worked closely in collaboration with ST Microelectronics on a European project called MEDEA+ T207. The change in location also brought about a change in the thin films deposition technique and a more industrial technique was required (metal organic chemical vapour deposition) as I worked in collaboration with STMicroelectronics on the replacement of SiO2 gate oxides in transistors for microelectronics by other oxides presenting higher permittivity such as HfO2. For the above reason I studied the optimization of the growth conditions (substrate temperature, injection frequency…) of HfO2 thin films in the aim to optimize its properties. I also have investigated the addition of dopants (yttrium, magnesium) in the films to subsequently induce the stabilization of the cubic structure of HfO2. Above all, Mg doped HfO2 has been patented with STMicroelectronics as an outcome of my research.
I taught 33 hours of laboratory course in Materials Science at the School of Engineering.
(Laboratoire des Matériaux et du Génie Physique, Minatec, INP Grenoble, Grenoble).
2000–2003 During my PhD at the University of Caen (200-2003), France I was initiated into thin films growth via PLD (Pulsed Laser Deposition) at the CRISMAT laboratory, Caen headed by Prof. Bernard Raveau at that time. I worked on manganite thin films presenting colossal magnetoresistance (CMR). Concerning my research background, my PhD research work entitled « Synthesis and characterization of charge ordered manganite thin films Ln0.5Ca0.5MnO3 (Ln = Pr, Nd, Sm), deposited by pulsed laser deposition. », was performed at the CRISMAT laboratory (Caen) under the guidance of Prof. Mercey and it concerns the investigation of strain in manganese oxide thin films deposited by pulsed laser deposition. I established the relationship between the structural modifications induced by the substrate and the evolution of transport properties, especially in thin films Nd0.5Ca0.5MnO3 and Sm0.5Ca0.5MnO3.
Teaching assistantship for 3 years, 297 hours of laboratory courses / courses

2013-2018 The main research activities of the research group "Nanotechnologies and Materials Science" at Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ) was related to the synthesis and study of metal nanoparticles for the development of biocidal coating and possible utilization in the field of nanomedicine (i.e. cancer treatment using the superparamagnetic properties of the metal nanoparticles synthesized). The metallic nanomaterials were also investigated for possible application in the field of water purification (extraction of heavy metal ions and radioactive elements). A UK patent was submitted. New carbon-based nanohybrid composites were also developed and studied for for energy harvesting and more particularly for the production of photocurrent under UV excitation.
See www.rauwel.eu for the detailed description of the research activities and links to the the scientific publications. (Tallinn University of Technology (TTÜ), Tartu College, Tartu).
2009-2012 At the University of Oslo (2009-2012), I was in charge of a project on the improvement of catalysts used for the Fischer-Tropsch (F-T) reaction via atomic layer deposition (ALD) process in close collaboration with Statoil (Norway’s largest oil company). The goal was to improve the mechanical properties of the catalyst support used in the F-T reaction using a conformal oxide coating (ZnO, CoO…) that could only be realized via ALD. We build with Prof. Ola Nilsen a specific glass reaction chamber to meet the objectives of this project.
I was also in charge of a project on thermal imaging at very low temperatures for the study of superconductor (detection of heat point and defect during electrical measurements). For this purpose I have developed an activity that couples both thin films deposition (ALD) and metal oxide nanoparticles synthesis. Therefore, here in Oslo, I have initiated and developed a nanoparticles synthesis (metal and metal-oxide) activity using non-aqueous sol-gel chemistry.
I have managed to obtain a Marie Curie European Re-integration grant of €45000 for 3 years (consumables, patents…) that gave me financial independence to manage this activity. The submission of a proposal for developing a new process for metal nanoparticles synthesis to “inGAP competition 2009” (ranked 1st) has given me the opportunity to supervise a Post-Doctoral fellow for 7 months by obtaining funding for him (~€35000). I was the project leader of the metal nanoparticles synthesis project and developed my own process of metal nanoparticles synthesis. (University of Oslo, Dept. of Chemistry, SMN, Oslo).
2006-2009 Following the Marie Curie project, I moved to the Department of Physics (2008-2009) where I held a postdoctoral grant from the Fundação para a Ciênca e a Tecnologia (FCT). Here I developed a new process based on the knowledge I acquired in Grenoble in the field of the replacement of SiO2 gate oxides in transistors for microelectronics by other oxides presenting higher permittivity such as HfO2. I applied this knowledge to control the oxygen stoechiometry of oxide thin films and the oxygen diffusion using RF-sputtering deposition. This process is based on the pre-deposition of a very thin magnesium layer before the deposition of the oxide thin film that enables us to grow high-k thin films and prevents the growth of the low-k (SiO2 and Si-based) interlayer usually observed. This process has been patented. Following my departure to Norway, I continued to collaborate with the University of Aveiro and more particularly with Profs. Vitor Amaral and Armando Lourenço. (University of Aveiro, CICECO, Aveiro).
During my stay at the University of Aveiro (2006-2008) I held a Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship (IEF) grant (2 years of salary and ~ €20,000 for expenses) to develop a new thin films deposition activity based on ALD. The goal of this project was to build new multiferroic structures based on the combination of metal oxide nanoparticles synthesis and thin film deposition (more particularly ALD that offers the possibility to perform a conformal coating). Based on my previous experience in Grenoble, I developed a new chemical method of deposition for thin films growth using carboxylic acids as an oxidizing source. The current technique allows depositing oxides at temperatures as low as 50ºC on many type of supports: monocrystalline substrates, carbon nanotubes, cellulose, wool... and this process has been patented. I applied this process to the deposition of dielectrics thin films for microelectronic applications and on the coating of carbon nanotubes with oxide thin films (I already performed such kind of study during my stay in Grenoble in collaboration with the CRTBT) to build a new type of gas sensor device for the detection of NO2. During this period, I have had also the opportunity to work closely with persons who are specialists in nanoparticles synthesis during my stay at CICECO..
2004-2006 During this period I held a Post-Doc in Grenoble (2004-2006), France at the LMGP (Laboratoire des Matériaux et de la Génie Physique) which is now a part of Minatec. I worked closely in collaboration with ST Microelectronics on a European project called MEDEA+ T207. The change in location also brought about a change in the thin films deposition technique and a more industrial technique was required (metal organic chemical vapour deposition) as I worked in collaboration with STMicroelectronics on the replacement of SiO2 gate oxides in transistors for microelectronics by other oxides presenting higher permittivity such as HfO2. For the above reason I studied the optimization of the growth conditions (substrate temperature, injection frequency…) of HfO2 thin films in the aim to optimize its properties. I also have investigated the addition of dopants (yttrium, magnesium) in the films to subsequently induce the stabilization of the cubic structure of HfO2. Above all, Mg doped HfO2 has been patented with STMicroelectronics as an outcome of my research.
I taught 33 hours of laboratory course in Materials Science at the School of Engineering.
(Laboratoire des Matériaux et du Génie Physique, Minatec, INP Grenoble, Grenoble).
2000-2003 During my PhD at the University of Caen (200-2003), France I was initiated into thin films growth via PLD (Pulsed Laser Deposition) at the CRISMAT laboratory, Caen headed by Prof. Bernard Raveau at that time. I worked on manganite thin films presenting colossal magnetoresistance (CMR). Concerning my research background, my PhD research work entitled « Synthesis and characterization of charge ordered manganite thin films Ln0.5Ca0.5MnO3 (Ln = Pr, Nd, Sm), deposited by pulsed laser deposition. », was performed at the CRISMAT laboratory (Caen) under the guidance of Prof. Mercey and it concerns the investigation of strain in manganese oxide thin films deposited by pulsed laser deposition. I established the relationship between the structural modifications induced by the substrate and the evolution of transport properties, especially in thin films Nd0.5Ca0.5MnO3 and Sm0.5Ca0.5MnO3.
