Brief Description of Project:
The student will work at both the clean room at VINSE and at my lab. They will fabricate contacts on different semiconductor materials using 3 steps fabrication process and then measure the contact resistance using current versus voltage measurements. They will gain knowledge on material science, fabrication processes and testing.
Semiconductor physics basics
Some clean room experience will be desired but not required
Some coding skills
Electrical testing skills.
Nature of Supervision:
I go through the basic steps and facilitate the training at VINSE if needed. My graduate student will be working closely with the summer student/s
A Brief Research Plan (period is for 10 weeks):
In the first couple of week we will focus on training and getting the student familiarized with the equipment in the lab.
Between the 3rd and 7th week we will conduct several experiments and splits to measure.
At the last couple of weeks we will work on summarizing the results and preparing a presentation to the group with our finding and I will gouge if the findings are worthy of peer reviewed publication.
