At KAI (Kompetenzzentrum Automobil- und Industrieelektronik GmbH), you will perform your thesis project in an industrial research environment, guided and supported by experienced researchers. We work in close cooperation with universities and research facilities supporting your academic education, whereas our industrial partner Infineon offers interesting opportunities for a prospective career path in the semiconductor industry. Infineon is a global leader in the production of power electronics. Comparably thick metallization layers are a crucial part of such power electronics, since they prevent that the energy introduced into the system by resistance heating, due to the high operating currents, leads to overheating of these devices. Because power electronics are commonly operated under harsh functional or environmental conditions, a crucial part in the development of devices is reliability testing and lifetime monitoring. In this project you should implement and test a material model for stress dependent vacancy diffusion into the commercial finite element software ANSYS via its FORTRAN subroutine interfaces, to study the effect of pore formation by trapping diffusing vacancies at microstructural features under reliability testing conditions.
