What you will do

  • You will be the strategic point of contact for the development of imec’s Silicon Photonics Hybrid Laser Integration activities, liaising with our key customers plus proposing key directions (in collaboration with the program management team) for our R&D teams to follow.
  • Your mission as a Laser packaging engineer in the 3D and Si photonics team will be to set up, develop and maintain the integration flows for Laser packaging related activities for Silicon Photonics, covering Flip Chip attach and Thermal Compression Bonding. You will work closely with the device design, characterization and process development engineers and be responsible for defining and implementing the process options enabling Laser co-integration with Si for photonics and their related packaging requirements. This will involve generation of experiments covering the materials and device characterization related to the packaging of Si Photonics devices.
  • You are responsible for coordinating reliability assessment and improvement activities. Together with imec’s reliability experts you will identify failure modes and propose solutions to prolong the device’s lifetime.
  • You are responsible for a streamlined project execution by interacting with process engineers, process assistants, test and reliability engineers as well as with external suppliers and customers.
  • You will be reporting the results to internal stakeholders, including peers across team/group/unit and to the external stakeholders including imec customers and core partners, as well as the scientific community.
