RD-9: Postdoctoral Researcher in Metrology and Design in Nanowire and Nanosheet Device Technologies
Contract: Full Time/Fixed Term
Tyndall National Institute is a leading European research centre in integrated ICT (Information and Communications Technology) hardware and systems, specialising in both electronics and photonics – materials, devices, circuits and systems. We are currently leading research programmes to capture the material science and physics of surface/interface engineered properties, in the context of understanding novel semiconductor processes. We will embark on correlative and hybrid metrology approaches linking microscopy and spectroscopy methods specific to nanowire and nanosheet logic device technologies. This research aligns with Tyndall’s ‘CMOS++’ mission of developing ‘Deep Tech Innovation’ for next generation ICT.
To maintain device scaling, industry has been forced to move from planar to non-planar device architectures. This alone has created the need to develop fundamentally new doping techniques with necessary conformal and shallow doping profiles. The state-of-the-art in semiconductor doping is beam-line ion implantation. It is the industry standard because it can generate a single ion species with a single energy in an industrially friendly highly controlled fashion. Addressing future challenges, the Industry is developing new dopant techniques suitable for high surface-to-volume device architectures. In parallel, metrology methods need to be deployed that are capable of characterising conceptually new semiconductor fabrication steps developed, and associated undiscovered materials properties. Specifically, correlative and hybrid metrology approaches of interest here:
We now wish to hire a Postdoctoral Researcher in Metrology and Design in Nanowire and Nanosheet Device Technologies for a period of 18 months.
The research duties of this particular position will involve elements of the following:
