Microfabrication and Exploratory Nanofabrication
Rizwan Gill is working as a research engineer in the Microfabrication and Exploratory Nanotechnology Department at INL since November 2015. He is involved in photolithography, PVD, CVD, RIE, wet etching, lift-off, and dicing process development. He also performs characterization (SEM, interferometer, optical and contact profiometer, resistivity mapper, and optical microscope) of test samples. He is responsible for training new users on PVD systems, optical microscope, and contact profilometer. He provides services to internal and external customers for the unit processes. He is also working on MPW projects (CMOS integration) with other engineers in the cleanroom.
Rizwan holds a master degree (April 2015) in Nanoelectronic Systems from Technical University Dresden (TUD), Germany. He managed to combine his curriculum at TU-Dresden together with employment as a student worker in the institution i.e. Max Bergman Center, Germany and companies i.e. Infineon Technologies, Germany in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics fabrication. He has worked at GLOBALFOUNDRIES as a process engineer from Jan 2014 to Sep. 2015 in the diffusion department, where he was responsible for process optimization, process monitoring and tool qualification of Rapid Thermal Annealing (RTA) and Decoupled Plasma Nitridation (DPN) chambers for CMOS technology, lower node production.
