IHP GmbH - Leibniz-Institut für innovative Mikroelektronik
IHP is an institute of the Leibniz Association and conducts research and development of silicon-based systems and ultra high-frequency circuits and technologies including new materials. It develops innovative solutions for application areas such as wireless and broadband communication, security, medical technology, industry 4.0, automotive industry, and aerospace. IHP employs approximately 330 people. It operates a pilot line for technological developments and the preparation of high-speed circuits with 0.13/0.25 μm BiCMOS technologies, located in a 1000 m² class 1 cleanroom.
Scientist (m/f/d) for CVD growth of SiGe/Si
Group IV (SiGe) heteroepitaxy provides a critical platform for various Si-based technologies, such as SiGe:C BiCMOS, Si-Photonics and electron spin-based quantum computing approaches. The research is conducted by an inter-divisional research team consisting of scientists from the Materials Research and Technology departments.
Tackling various growth aspects and engineering CVD growth strategies on 200mm Si wafers
Participating in the structural characterization (SIMS, TEM, XRD etc.) and carefully evaluating the material quality
Supporting different Group-IV (i.e. Si, SiGe, Ge)-based research projects as well as assisting to maintain the overall epitaxy process stability of IHP’s pilot line
A PhD degree can be pursued and is highly encouraged
Master degree in physics, materials science, chemistry or similar
Strong background in solid state/semiconductor physics and their epitaxial growth and materials characterization
Ideally practical experience in the MBE, CVD or MOCVD and CMOS process technology
Very good oral and written skills in English (and German)
