Postdoc – Development of micro-transfer technologies for zero-newton placement and bonding of ultimately thin semiconductor chips

Background: Foldable, thin, light-weight, stackable, high performance – that’s the promise that flexible electronics and integration of highly heterogeneous functional and structural materials holds today. Smart systems featuring ubiquitous intelligence such as wireless sensor networks, micro-aerial vehicles, embedded defense, security and biomedicine chips, environment monitoring and smart textiles are all applications that flexible electronics and heterogeneous integration would make take off. To realize that objectives, microsystems (comprising digital, embedded memories and analogue signal processing), RF circuitry, antennas, sensors, actuators and microfluidics need to be developed. In that context, IEMN develops a flagship research project on flexible electronics featuring the two distinctive trademarks: i) high performance multi-Ghz flexible electronics ii) heterogeneous integration of smart materials and functional blocks onto mechanically flexible/stretchable substrates. In support to this scientific/technological program, the LEAF Equipex platform provides innovative laser-based micro-patterning techniques.

Description of work: The overall objective is to develop alternative placement and bonding technologies of thinned high frequency chip (100 µm² large and 10 µm thick) on flexible substrates. In particular the work aims at designing zero-newton placement and bonding strategies of thin semiconductor chips onto plastic foils. To do so the candidate will have to integrate state of the art knowledge on (i) surface energy modification by geometric and chemical modification and on (ii) interplay between capillary and elastic forces between flexible thin film and liquid droplets. The work will be performed in the clean-rooms of IEMN where state of the art equipments are available (see website) to study and optimize wafer grinding and surface texturing processing steps and to set-up and to characterize microfluidic experiments [1-4]. Special emphasis will be put on polymer coating of hydrophobic substrate, on conformal flattening of semiconductor micro-sheets onto plastic foils and on the use of surface tension and elasticity gradients for chip self-placement.

Duration: 18 months appointment available immediately – start date before 1st January 2014

Salary: ~2350-2500€ gross/month, ~1950-2050€ net/month according to profile

Location: Institut d’Electronique, de Microélectronique et de Nanotechnologie – IEMN, Villeneuve d’Ascq (F)

Requested qualification: Ph.D. in micro-nanotechnologies with strong experience in polymer science, microfluidics and clean-room processing. Proficiency in flexible electronics is an advantage.

Context:

In the framework of a new large project (EQUIPEX ExCELSiOR-NCC), IEMN will create a new characterization platform for nanosciences gathering a large set of new experimental instruments operating at the interface between nano-microscopy and high frequency measurement tools. One of them, not commercially available, will be built from a high resolution MEB set-up equipped with AFM head and two nano-manipulators. This new instrument will be dedicated both for the study of structural behaviours and high frequency electrical mechanisms of nanodevices such as semiconducting nanowires, carbon nanotubes as well as other 1D and 2D materials with high dynamic properties.

 

For the high frequency aspect, a new class of micrometer/nanometer size high frequency probes, not exiting today, have to be designed and fabricated. These probes will be realized using the technological facilities of IEMN (www.iemn.univ-lille1.fr) within the expertise of research group in the fields of MEMS fabrication and high frequency design. The recruited research engineer will have in responsibility the fabrication of these probes and the optimization of the process flow.

 

Candidate profile:

This position is dedicated for a young doctor who is familiar with clean room facilities. Some knowledge on MEMS/NEMS fabrication flow or other micrometer / nanometer devices will be appreciated as well as knowledge of multi-physics (mechanical and EM) simulation tools (COMSOL…).
