Job ID: 2019-11133 Type: Full-Time # of Openings: 1 Category: Research and Laboratory
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory seeks to fill a postdoctoral research position at PPPL under the Plasma Science and Technology. The successful candidate will investigate the physical mechanisms governing the optimization of couple efficiency of the laser-produced-plasma (LPP) for the micro-electronic industries. The successful candidate will be responsible of setting up a laboratory for ]aser-plasma interactions, specifically the study the physics of laser-tin droplet interaction. The appointment will be based at PPPL.
The successful candidate will contribute in the development of basic laboratory setup to investigate the physical mechanisms governing the optimization of couple efficiency of the laser-produced-plasma (LPP) for high-volume manufacturing (HVM). The work includes designing a tin droplet generator, setting up a laser system in a plasma as well as the collection system extreme UV detection. The position is at the post-doctoral level. The successful candidate will be based at PPPL.
Education and Experience:
Applicant should have a Ph.D. in laser-plasma interaction, condensed matter, engineering physics, laser physics, or optical engineering.
Knowledge, Skills and Abilities:
Preference will be given to candidates with excellent experimental physics experience as well as hands-on experience with lasers and optics.
