Research Staff Member (m/f/d) - Facet technology -

Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH), Berlin

The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut, Leibniz-Institut für Höchstfrequenztechnik (FBH) within the Forschungsverbund Berlin e.V., is a leading international research institute that studies diode lasers, LEDs and microwave devices.

On the basis of III/V semiconductors, it researches and implements components and systems for applications in communications, traffic and production technology, medicine and biotechnology. It covers the entire value chain from design to ready-for-delivery systems.

The Ferdinand-Braun-Institut develops GaAs-based diode lasers in a wide design variety and for manifold applications, e.g. high power laser diodes for material processing as well as those for space applications, which demand highest reliability. In all applications the laser performance is essentially influenced by the quality of the laser facets. The FBH uses its own patented facet passivation process. In the near future the facet technology will be expanded by cleaving in ultra-high vacuum in order to further increase the facet stability.

We are looking for a research staff member to implement and validate this technology and to assist our facet technology team.

(Reference number 04/20)

The task is to establish the facet technology based on cleaving in ultra-high vacuum. Additionally the candidate should support the facet technology group regarding the process and quality control of the established passivation based technology.

Candidates must have successfully completed their university education in natural sciences (master’s degree, diploma) in the field of physics, electrical engineering or materials science. Extensive experience in deposition methods of semiconductors or dielectric thin films (molecular beam epitaxy, sputtering) and their physical characterization and/or a strong background in ultra-high vacuum equipment operation is essential. Basic knowledge in semiconductor laser physics is desirable.

Teamwork and committed, independent work as well as very good knowledge of the German and English language, both spoken and written, are required. The position can be filled immediately and is initially limited to two years.

Payment is according to TVöD (collective salary scheme for German public service). FBH is an equal-opportunity employer. Female candidates are encouraged to apply. Among equally qualified applicants, preference will be given to handicapped candidates.
