Your future responsibilities

Topic of the master thesis is focused on experimental work on Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) printer. The EHD printer in question is a beyond state-of-the-art laboratory prototype and offers the possibility to be a part of the ground-breaking research activities. The objective of the thesis is to develop and establish printing process for different types of inks (conductive, semiconductive, dielectric) and to conduct a comprehensive DOE study with the goal to test EHD printer performance for the minimal resolutions, ink printability, printing speed etc.
Future tasks and responsibilities:

  • Study influence of ink properties on the printer performance.
  • Study influence of process parameters on the printer performance.
  • Perform electrical, mechanical and optical measurements.
  • Evaluate and compare the measurement results.
  • Documentation and reporting.
  • Support in publication writing.

Your profile

  • Master student in microelectronics, microsystem technology, semiconductor technologies, material science, physics or similar fields.
  • Experience in cleanroom would be beneficial appreciated.
  • Experience with printing techniques (e.g. inkjet, EHD printing, spraying, jetting etc.) is desirable.
  • Motivated and autonomous personality, well organized and enjoys working in a dynamic and multi-cultural environment.
  • Good analytical and data processing skills.
  • Oral and written communication skills in English.
