Full-Time

Overview

The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) seeks to fill a post-doctoral research physicist position to perform plasma simulations for the modeling of low-temperature plasma devices for microelectronics and quantum information science. Applicants will have multi-disciplinary experience in material synthesis with proficiency in the fields of plasma physics and chemistry, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). The applicant will develop a model of a plasma reactor for the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) of diamond. Therefore, experience in modeling of plasma-material interaction with important aspects including plasmas that are not in the state of thermodynamical equilibrium is crucial. Particularly, experience in developing integrated models of plasma reactors for plasma processing and CVD is crucial.

 

Validation and verification of the code will be facilitated through collaboration with research and industry partners, and the candidate should be adept at managing and maintaining these relationships. Through these collaborations they will be asked to apply these codes to model micro-wave (MW) discharges for diamond CVD. The candidate should be proficient on the physics and chemistry which govern these devices, including the importance of self-consistent plasma formation in MW plasmas and impurity transport. A proven record of collaboration with experimentalists and demonstrated impact on experimental programs is desirable. Previous experience working with industry is beneficial.
