Research & development - Leuven | More than two weeks ago
For some applications including quantum computers, aerospace, medical devices like MRI, cyclotrons for high energy physics research and cryogenic oxygen generators, electronic circuits and devices must be operated at very low temperatures. For instance, in quantum computers, to prevent unwanted thermal excitation of the states, qubits must work at temperatures around 20-50mK. These applications strongly push for the development of future (3-5 years from now) microelectronics devices and packages which can work reliable at these low temperatures.
To enable full performance of quantum computers, 3D interconnects using bumps and TSVs are required. In this master thesis, student will work on low temperature electrical measurement systems to characterize the electrical performance of various superconducting layers as microbumps and TSVs. It is the task of master student to down select the best performing layers among several candidates based on the results of electrical tests.
