(02) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Researcher/Scientist in the field of HiPIMS process development

In this project, we aim to develop new HiPIMS processes for the synthesis of functional, metastable thin films, particularly nitrides. The phase formation during reactive sputter deposition depends on many parameters. Due to the complexity of the pulsed sputtering process, a deep understanding of the physical processes in the deposition system is important. To this end, we will develop models and simulate the process using multi-physics software. The results of these simulations will be validated using state-of-the-art process diagnostics as well as material characterization techniques. The objective is to understand and exploit the synthesis-structure-property relationships in reactive HiPIMS to create new thin film materials with tailored functionality.
