Master Diploma Projects

  • Graphene growth on SiC and its characterization
    The project is based on the growth of graphene on SiC substrates using conventional SiC chemical vapor deposition reactor. It also involves characterization of graphene using atomic force microscopy, optical microscopy, contactless measurements of charge carrier density and mobility as well as micro-Raman spectroscopy. Students with background in physics and material science can contact us for this master’s thesis project.

  • Growth of graphene and its industrial production approach
    We have developed a high temperature growth process of graphene on silicon carbide. This is transferred to an industrial production with Graphensic AB that is a spin-off company from Semiconductor Materials division. We seek a materials science and growth interested master thesis student in growth of graphene and production oriented research.

  • Growth of cubic silicon carbide
    Cubic silicon carbide may be a new material for transistors, solar cells and novel structures with graphene. A challenge is the growth and reproducibility. We have developed a novel approach, the Cubic Sublimation Method (CSM), for growth of this material. We seek a materials science and growth interested master thesis student in growth of cubic silicon carbide.

  • Landau Level spectroscopy in graphene on SiC
    Unique ellipsometry measurements at mid-infrared and far-infrared wavelengths in magnetic field allow the determination of Landau levels even in one monolayer graphene samples.  This diploma work will include measurements and analysis of Landau level spectroscopy in graphene layers with different thicknesses in order to determine their electronic properties, defects and transport properties. The final goal is to develop material suitable for novel THz large-scale processor technologies for future fast electronics applications.

  • Simulations of Chemical Vapor Deposition processes
    Through chemical vapor deposition (CVD) a thin film of high quality is created from gaseous source materials. This process takes place at high temperature and often reduced pressure, and it involves many different physical phenomena – from fluid flow dynamics to radiative and convective heat transfer, from high temperature chemical reactions to crystal growth. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), where chemical reactions both in the gas-phase and on surfaces can be included, the process can be studied in great detail. In this project CFD shall be used to investigate and analyze how changes to process parameters and geometry may impact the flow and temperature patterns as well as deposition distributions in a CVD reactor. Students with an interest in modeling, fluid dynamics and thin film growth shall contact us for this master thesis project.
