Job Description:/h3:
The MBE Epi Process Engineer is responsible for efficient and cost:effective process implementation and day:to:day engineering supervision of all assigned MBE reactors. Responsibilities include process development, production, and material quality. The Epi Process Engineer is expected to understand and anticipate interactions between IQEs epi growth process and the customers epi structure so that the customer receives material that meets or exceeds expectations.
:Ensure that all assigned reactors are run in a safe/responsible manner consistent with established procedures and in a cost efficient manner that is consistent with the overall business plan.
:Establish daily growth sequence on all assigned reactors, communicating technical plans through Current Operating Procedures (COP) form, via e:mail, or verbally as appropriate.
:Ensure calibration and integrity of assigned reactors.
:Set growth parameters, write growth recipes, review and interpret growth and characterization data, and direct all process adjustments, verifying that they are appropriate and within process guidelines established by internal SOPs as well as internal and external specifications.
:Maintain relevant reactor documentation and SPC charts.
:Ensure the product grown on assigned reactors is high quality, meeting or exceeding customer specifications and expectations.
:Make judgments on issues outside of established SOPs and specifications, deciding when to escalate to Engineering / Operational Management.
:Ensure accurate disposition of all wafers grown on assigned reactors, including assignment of appropriate status codes.
:Troubleshoot material problems and assist maintenance personnel to diagnose equipment issues so they can be repaired as efficiently as possible.
:Monitor standard operational metrics (yield, throughput, etc.) and take actions and make recommendations (within the scope of their responsibility) to continuously improve reactor performance in such areas.
:Maintain and analyze all reactor operating data and provide to management as required to ensure effective scheduling and expectations; maintain and analyze trends in data over time to improve reactor yield and efficiency
:Maintain continuous self:improvement in epi growth, semiconductor materials science, SPC, and device physics
Minimum Education and Experience Requirements:
:Bachelor Degree in Engineering, Physics, or a similar field of study or equivalent experience necessary to perform job responsibilities
:A minimum of five years epi growth experience
:Good understanding of semiconductor growth
:MBE process engineers will have familiarity with vacuum science, high vacuum equipment, and electronics; including a working knowledge of temperature controllers, ion gauge controllers, ion pump power supplies, etc
:Good understanding of semiconductor physics including band structure, crystal structure, impurity effects, depletion effects, etc.
:Must have working knowledge of semiconductor Characterization equipment, including the ability to interpret the data from standard equipment (e.g. PL, Hall, E:CV, Surfscan, Lehighton Rsh, X:Ray, and Hg:probe)
:Strong communications (written and verbal) skills necessary for effective interaction with various levels of personnel and excellent data analysis skills with emphasis on statistics
:Basic understanding of the theory of semiconductor device operation (e.g., FET, diodes, BJT, lasers)
:Basic understanding of the processing of the above:mentioned devices
:Basic understanding of quantum mechanics and electromagnetic fields
:Knowledge of computers and software necessary to generate reports and run the assigned reactors
