New Team Member Alexander

Alexander Toifl starts today as a doctoral student in the HPTCAD team and will investigate high performance modeling and simulation approaches for non-planar epitaxy. Alexander studied electrical engineering at the TU Wien and defended his Master’s thesis on “Modeling and Simulation of Thermal Annealing of Implanted GaN and SiC” (supervised by Vito) in June 2018. Welcome to our team, Alex!


Successful Dissertation Defense

On June, 28th our team member Paul Manstetten defended his dissertation “Efficient Flux Calculations for Topography Simulation” with distinction. He will continue his research within the team as a postdoctoral researcher.

Special thanks go to the defence committee: his supervisor, Prof. Siegfried Selberherr, the committee chair, Prof. Ulrich Schmid and last but not least the external reviewers: PD Dr. Harald Köstler from FAU Erlangen-Nürenberg, Germany and Prof. Michael Wimmer from TU Wien, Austria.

Congratulations, Paul!

Papers Accepted in JPC A and in IEEE TED

Our papers, both spearheaded by Vito, “ReaxFF Reactive Molecular Dynamics Study of Orientation Dependence of Initial Silicon Carbide Oxidation” and “Empirical Model for Electrical Activation of Aluminum- and Boron-Implanted Silicon Carbide” have been accepted for publication in  the Journal of Physical Chemistry A and in the IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices, respectively.
