    Phd subject - Field mapping in semiconductor devices by transmission electron microscopy
    Announcement date: 21 November 2017

    [show details]

    Description

    We are looking for a Phd student who wishes to develop their experimental skills in the field of electron microscopy. The subject involves the development of STEM-based techniques to measure the fields in a range of different types of semiconductor specimens.  In this subject the student will develop both differential phase contrast (DPC) and Nanobeam diffraction for the measurement of electrostatic potentials in a range of different devices which include silicon CMOS devices, IIIV materials and PV materials.  DPC uses a segmented annular detector to measure the deflection of the transmitted beam whereas nanobeam diffraction uses a fast CCD camera. The results will be compared to other field mapping techniques such as off-axis electron holography to assess the advantages and disadvantages of each. This subject will involve the use of an aberration corrected FEI Titan Themis and double aberration corrected FEI Titan Ultimate.  The FEI Titan Ultimate is also equipped with a fast Oneview camera for rapid acquisition of diffraction patterns. The ability to apply an electrical bias to (or to measure the generated current in) the specimens is also possible using both chip-based and piezo-contact specimen holders.  The laboratory is also equipped with a FEI Osiris, FEI Tecnai, 4 dual-beam FIBs as well as a range of complimentary characterisation tools.
