      Master Thesis: Physical and Chemical Characterisation of Printable Functional Material for Semiconductor Applications

      At a glance

      The subject of this master thesis is the development of printing processes (inkjet printing, stencil or screen printing) and its integration into the workflow of semiconductor manufacturing. This is an interdisciplinary field with the core subjects chemistry, physics and material science. The aim of the project is to investigate and characterize new functional materials (conductors, dielectrics, sensors,…), which can be applied by industrial printing processes in order to apply them in the semiconductor industry.

      Job description

      In your new role you will:

      • Developing printing processes for new materials with highly specific properties
      • Usage of modern industrial and research printing equipment
      • Conversion of printed structures via chemical and physical
        into stable end form
      • Evaluation and optimization of all relevant process parameters (DoE)
      • Physical and chemical characterization of process results
      • Usage of modern chemical and physical analysis tools
      • Working in an interdisciplinary and international team

      Start: 01.09.2018 (8-10 months)
      Working time: full-time (38.5 hours/week)
