Process Integration Engineer (Chip, R&D, NPI, Wafer Fab Semiconductor)
Lumentum have an opportunity for an experienced Process Integration Engineer to join our Chip R&D team to develop new and improved processes for fabrication of III-V-semiconductor wafers for InP optical components to be based from our Caswell, Northamptonshire offices
The Chip R&D department is responsible for development and introduction into production of new lasers, modulators, receivers, and photonic integrated circuits, for coherent telecommunications systems operating at up to 600 Gb/s per wavelength. This will require collaborative working with staff from a wide range of engineering backgrounds with many different skills to solve challenging problems with real commercial impact
Development of new InP wafer fab processes required for novel chips for new optical fibre transmitter and receiver components, operating at up to 70GHz. And ensuring these processes are manufacturable in volume.
Improvements on existing wafer fab processes for production components, for both coherent and direct detection photonic semiconductor components.
Integration of new wafer fab processes with existing process steps.
Writing of procedures on wafer fab MES systems.
Transfer into manufacture of new process steps and new chips.
Wafer process optimisations for improved yield, cost or cycle time.
Present wafer process information to R&D and operations teams with manufacturability statistical evidence.
The candidate will work closely with:
Engineering leads and design primes in the chip R&D/NPI department
Wafer fab manufacturing operations
SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
Degree in physics, electrical/electronic engineering, materials science or a related discipline, with a broad engineering background.
In-depth knowledge of semiconductor wafer processing techniques
Experience in a broad range of semiconductor wafer processing, including but not restricted to several of the following: lithography, dry etching, wet etching, dielectrics/metal deposition patterning, implant, diffusion.
Process integration of existing and new wafer processes for manufacture of new designs on new wafer platforms.
Knowledge of important aspects of semiconductor materials.
Proven ability to execute complex engineering activities
Project co-ordination between R&D and manufacturing teams
Previous experience in this or related industries (optoelectronics, semiconductor technology, solid state physics, electronics or telecommunications) is not essential, but is advantageous
