R&D Advanced Memory Thin Films Development Engineer

Date: Jan 8, 2018

Location: Boise, ID, US

Company: Micron

Req Id: 106330 

As an Advanced Memory Technology Thin Films Process Development Engineer at Micron Technology, Inc., you will contribute at a high level as part of process technology team to develop deep sub-micron generation production-worthy, low cost processes, including CVD/PECVD, ALD/PEALD, PVD, beamline implantation, and Plasma Immersion Implantation.  You will provide ownership for both process development & related tool issues for specific films/processes.  You will also be responsible for incorporating these processes into corresponding process flow for application in high density advanced memory parts.




Successful candidates for this position will have:

  • A minimum of 3 years experience or equivalence in Fab research and development, preferably with experience in thin films deposition on microelectronic devices.
  • The ability to work with a wide variety of people in different areas of R&D process, integration, and pilot line production to effectively accomplish tasks in a timely manner.
  • The ability to plan and execute effective, well-designed experiments and write clear, concise reports documenting the results.
  • The ability to suggest process alternatives and evaluate different options that may provide improved film properties and higher process margins.
  • The ability to give and take constructive criticism from other team members and be able to leverage input to drive projects forward.
  • An understanding of
    • Electronic material properties, thermal dynamics, chemical kinetics, plasma physics and chemistry, vacuum physics, and their direct application to thin films deposition processes in various deposition methods, including CVD/PECVD, ALD/PEALD, and PVD. Fundamental plasma processing and their impact on film properties. Statistical analysis, SPC/DOE. Thin films fundamentals and roles in all processing steps of forming memory devices, peripheral devices and their IC circuit. Fundamental challenges in material exploration for device scaling.
    • Various types of physical film analysis techniques such as SEM/EDS, TEM/EELS, XPS/AES, SIMS, RBS, ICP-GDMS, AFM, XRR, and XRD. Various thin film electrical evaluation methods and techniques.
  • Experience and knowledge of Fab metrology tools such as optical/electrical methods.
  • The ability to evaluate and make insightful inferences from large amounts of various types of data, such as physical & electrical analysis.
  • The ability to interact and collaborate with integration engineers to develop robust film and related module as well as deploy the process to internal customers in R&D and the production fabs.
  • The ability to be a self-motivated team player and be adaptable to Micron's changing needs including working extended hours if required.
  • The ability to be highly motivated and goal oriented.
  • The ability to aggressively focus on solving problems both as part of a team and individually.
