  • LEDs (full spectral range from 365nm to 1.55um)
  • Monolithic arrays (Red, Green, Blue)
  • Laser Diode
  • MicroLEDs Displays
  • Infrared Sensors

Moreover, you will be involved in wafer processing for device fabrication and, as an integral part of the development and improvement team, you will:

  • Provide dielectric deposition and etching (both dielectric and III-V semiconductor) expertise in process and product development.
  • Day to day operation & ownership of deposition and etching tools.
  • Direct technician/operator support to deliver process on agreed schedules.
  • Schedule and complete (hands-on where necessary) maintenance activities on all tools in area.
  • Monitor process outcomes against agreed requirements specs, recognising when to stop process and making process corrections.
  • Maintain statistical process control of all deposition and etching tools to ensure stable and robust processing platform.
