Job Description

Staff Associate
Columbia University

The Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics at Columbia University’s Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science in New York City is looking for Optical Laser Technician to work in the Im Research Group.

This position will be working in a group that focuses on the topics and subjects that may be viewed as located within the “triangular” area as defined by (1) beam-induced melting and solidification of thin films, (2) laser crystallization of Si films for advanced displays and other electronic applications, and (3) nucleation & initiation in discontinuous phase transitions in condensed systems. All research methods and approaches (i.e., experimental, numerical/computational, and theoretical) are employed and leveraged in order to decipher, comprehend, and conceptualize the fundamental nature of often ultra-rapid and often far-from-equilibrium phase transitions that transpire in beam-irradiated thin films; these scientifically valuable findings and outcomes involving the transformations also often lead the group to conceive and develop technologically innovative and inventive ideas for advancing various thin-semiconductor-film-based applications and products (e.g., advanced displays, solar cells, and three-dimensional integrated circuits) by creating and supplying high-performance-enabling thin-film materials that possess optimally manipulated arrangement of the atoms.

The successful candidate will support this research through laser and energy-beam-induced processing of materials to lead and manage a multiple-company-participating project on spot-beam crystallization (SBC) of thin Si films for the manufacture of advanced OLED displays and other electronic applications. This positon will also help develop a new state of art laser system for the crystallization of amorphous Si thin film.

Job Requirements

Minimum Degree Required
Masters in an engineering or science field

Minimum Qualifications
A minimum of 2 years of experience in ultrahigh frequency UV laser optics, pulsed laser beam delivery and excimer laser crystallization of thin films, is mandatory.
