Our maniscript titled An Extended Knudsen Diffusion Model for Aspect Ratio Dependent Atomic Layer Etching has been accepted for oral presentation at the 6th International Atomic Layer Etching Workshop (ALE2019). The conference will take place July 21-24, 2019 in Bellevue, WA, USA
Alexander Scharinger started on April 1st as a doctoral student in the HPTCAD team and will investigate efficient algorithms and data structures for surface rate calculations, in particular ray tracing and stochastic sampling methods. Alexander received the Bachelor’s degree in Software & Information Engineering and the Master’s degree in Logic and Computation from TU Wien in 2015 and 2018, respectively. Welcome to our team, Alex!
We are offering a new PhD Student / Research Assistant position (3 years, 40 hours/week) to recent master’s graduates (or soon to be) who want to pursue a career in computational science and engineering. The research is conducted in close collaboration with SILVACO, which co-finances the Laboratory. Application is now open and remain so until it is filled. The actual start date can be negotiated.

On November, 5th our team member Vito Simonka defended his dissertation “Thermal Oxidation and Dopant Activation of Silicon Carbide” with distinction. Because of the successful cooperation, Vito has joined Silvaco’s team starting November 1st, located at Silvaco’s office in Vienna.
Special thanks go to the defense committee: his supervisor, Prof. Dr. Siegfried Selberherr and to the external reviewers: Prof. Dr. Yasuto Hijikata from Saitama University, Japan and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schmid from TU Wien, Austria.
Alexander Toifl was awarded the faculty’s prize (“Fakultätspreis”) by the dean of the faculty Univ.Prof. Rupp and the dean of academic affairs Univ.Prof. Strasser on Fri 21, 2018. The ceremony took place at the annual “Fakultätsfest”, where Alexander was presenting his master’s thesis “Modeling and Simulation of Thermal Annealing of Implanted GaN and SiC”. The faculty’s prize honors outstanding master’s and PhD theses that are presented at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology.
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!
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.
Michael Quell started as a doctoral student in the HPTCAD team on June 4. He will focus on high performance data structures for process TCAD. Welcome to our team!
Vito’s paper “Transient Model for Electrical Activation of Aluminium and Phosphorus-Implanted Silicon Carbide” has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Applied Physics.
The HPTCAD continues to grow in 2018. Luiz Felipe Aguinsky joined the HPTCAD team as a doctoral student. He will be working on advanced high performance etching simulations. Welcome to our team!
