Functie omschrijving

The group of Integrated Devices and Systems (IDS) has a vacancy for a Postdoc to work on CMOS transistors and their wearout due to stress-induced leakage current. The aim of the project is to investigate self-repair (recovery) of stress-induced leakage current and to formulate a model to describe this effect, in order to improve contemporary reliability estimates for CMOS electronics.

Within the project, we cooperate with several industrial partners and two academic partners with a strong international reputation. The focal point of the research is experimentation, combined with analysis and model development. The students have full access to state of the art characterization equipment as well as the MESA+ Nanolab for experimentation.

Type of work: 50% experimental studies, 20% material analysis, 20% material and defect modelling, 10% educational tasks.
