PhD position at HZDR – In-situ Ion Beam Characterization

HZDR’s Ion Beam Center is looking for a PhD student (f/m/d) to work on In-situ Ion Beam Characterization:

“For the research project OptiBeam we are looking for personnel reinforcement. The aim of the project is to develop and test an apparatus that allows to characterize ion beam parameters (such as particle type, energy, dose) in-situ during the implantation of semiconductors. The focus of the work here is the implementation of the measurement technique in an industrial environment (project partner Infineon Dresden) under production conditions. The challenge therefore lies in the implementation of the physical processes under the boundary conditions in the production environment. For this purpose, a test setup of the apparatus is to be built and put into operation at different accelerators and implanters of the Ion Beam Center. This will be used to test the fundamentals of the measurement routines and to simulate the production environment. It is especially important to develop automated evaluation routines which will later work autonomously in production. After successful testing of the apparatus, it is to be installed, commissioned and optimized on one of the implanters at Infineon Dresden. The following tasks are to be undertaken:

  • Design and testing of a measurement setup for in-situ characterization of ion beams
  • Set-up of a test experimental arrangement on a beam channel of the 6MV tandem accelerator at the Ion Beam Center
  • Characterization of the experimental setup and derivation of measurement recipes
  • On-site visits at Infineon Dresden and integration of the measurement setup into an ion implanter under production conditions
  • The focus of the advertised position is on systematic, experimental investigations and therefore requires comparatively little theory”

Applications can be submitted on the HZDR website until 21 September 2023.
