Diamond RF Transistor Technology
at ORAU/ORISE DoD Programs

Date Posted: 11/28/2018

Opportunity Description

A candidate is sought to conduct research on Diamond RF Transistor Technology. The research will involve single crystal diamond substrate evaluation, metrology, process development, mask design, fabrication, and electrical characterization of RF devices and test structures. The research topics of interest include, but are not limited to, hydrogen termination of diamond surface, charge transfer to adsorbed oxide layers, 2D hole channel stability over time and temperature, carrier mobility verification and improvement, and diamond transistor high frequency operation. The candidate should have experience with: clean room protocols and procedures, fabrication of diamond test structures and devices, electrical characterization, and reliability testing. Established publication track record in diamond research, or related field, is a plus. Suggested Sources: Russell, S., Sharabi, S., Tallaire, A. and Moran, D.

About Us

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) administers Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) research participation programs for civilians such as:

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Program that allow senior scientists, faculty; high school, bachelor’s, masters’ and doctoral students, and recent graduates to enhance their science education experience in projects and activities at our Department of Defense (DOD) and other Government and Private Industry customers’ laboratories and research facilities worldwide.

The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) allow Postdoctoral Fellows, Journeyman Fellows (undergraduate and graduates students and recent graduates), Senior Researchers, and Summer Faculty engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs.

Research opportunities include, but are not limited to the following disciplines: Aerospace Engineering, Anthropology, Archeology, Biology, Biochemistry, Biological Engineering, Biomechanical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Environmental Health Risk Assessment, Environmental Science, Entomology, Epidemiology, Ergonomics, Geology, Health Education Mechanical Engineering, Materials Science, Mathematics, Nanotechnology, Photonics, Physics, Public Health Economics, Public Health Policy, and more.
