Silicon Photonics Laser Packaging Engineer

Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago

Join the the 3D and silicon photonics team at imec’s R&D headquarters located in the heart of Europe and help in revolutionizing next-generation silicon integrated photonics

Silicon Photonics Laser Packaging Engineer

What you will do

  • You will be the strategic point of contact for the development of imec’s Si 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, Thermal Compression Bonding and III-V to Si 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 a streamlined project execution by interacting with process engineers, process assistants, test and reliability engineers as well as with 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. 
  • You need to stay on top of the state of the art within your competence domain and benchmark imec’s solutions.
