A leading developer of precision optical and photonic components is now looking for a Thin Film Scientist to join their Taunton Facility.
It is expected you will be come the Thin Film Expert, designing optical thin film stack, understanding the thin film stack performance, understanding thin film metrology, and characterisation of thin film coatings.
In addition as Thin Film Scientist, you will also serve as a material expert: understanding material property and the relationship between material property and thin film stack performance/durability, understanding modern material characterization methods and failure analysis methods, understanding ISO and MIL thin film coating inspection standard/method and durability test standard/method.
Working closely with Sales and Marketing, you will specify optical performance and component durability, and turn requirements into optical thin film stack design.
Working with Process Engineering and Production, you will implement optical thin film stack.
You will see the developments through all stages of the life cycle, through design, modelling, prototype, characterisation, test and failure analysis.
Using your familiarity with metrology you will develop systems for optical characterisation and develop test strategies for optical coating performance / durability.
You will trouble shoot coating failures and customer failures utilising Failure Analysis technology.
Once complete, you will develop the roadmaps, write white papers, publish results in top-tier journals and present at conferences.
As the successful Thin Film Scientist, you should hold a PhD or equivalent in an Optics, Photonics, Semiconductor or relevant discipline.
In addition to your PhD, you should have 3 or more years’ experience with optical instrumentation, modelling, prototyping, plus experience in applied research or product development, gained within a product development environment.
Candidates MUST be eligible to live and work in the UK. Copies of Passport and Visa will be requested for verification purposes.
