Thèmes de recherche / REsearch Themes

His scientific interests cover fundamental aspects and recurrent issues in plasma etching as well as process development. Area of expertise includes etching processes in fluorine-based and CH4-H2 plasmas, material and surface analyses (photoelectron spectroscopy, ellipsometry) as well as plasma diagnostics (mass and optical spectrometry, electrostatic probes). Past experience include deep etching in Si, SiO2 and silica glass, etching of III-V materials for optoelectronics, and etching of organosilicon low-κ materials for advanced interconnections. At present research topics concern etching of III-V and II-VI semiconductor materials as well as chalcogenide glasses for photonics, and development of Cl2-based plasma processes.
