Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tut für Pho­to­ni­sche Mikro­sys­teme

Das Fraun­ho­fer-Insti­tut für Pho­to­ni­sche Mikro­sys­teme ist eines von 67 Insti­tu­ten der Fraun­ho­fer-Gesell­schaft, einer der füh­ren­den Orga­ni­sa­tio­nen für ange­wandte For­schung in Europa.

Mas­ter or Diploma The­sis "High Reso­lu­tion Mea­su­re­ment of Large Out-of-plane Dis­pla­ce­ments Uti­li­zing Digi­tal Holo­gra­phic Micro­scope" (IPMS-2018-128)

Work­ing field:

The work will focus on mea­su­ring large out-of-plane dis­pla­ce­ments ( smal­ler 100 µm) with high reso­lu­tion (smal­ler 50 nm) of “Nano­sco­pic Elec­tro­sta­tic Drive (NED)” actua­tors deve­lo­ped by MAS team of Fraun­ho­fer IPMS. The large dis­pla­ce­ments will be eva­lua­ted using dif­fe­rent out-of-plane mea­su­re­ment methods asso­cia­ted with Digi­tal Holo­gra­phic Micro­scope (DHM). The various pos­si­ble mea­su­re­ment methods will be inves­ti­ga­ted along with their errors and limi­ta­ti­ons to find the most sui­ta­ble large out-of-plane dis­pla­ce­ment mea­su­re­ment method for DHM.

Key aspects:

  • To get fami­li­a­ri­zed with the out-of-plane MEMS actua­tors based on NED prin­ci­ple and the mea­su­re­ment setup of DHM
  • Inves­ti­ga­tion of pos­si­ble large out-of-plane dis­pla­ce­ment (>100 µm) mea­su­re­ment methods in DHM
  • Eva­lua­tion of the reso­lu­tion, asso­cia­ted errors and limi­ta­ti­ons of the dif­fe­rent methods using NED test struc­tu­res and selec­ting the most sui­ta­ble method
  • Stan­dar­di­za­t­ion and auto­ma­tion of the selec­ted method using Lab­VIEW


What you bring:

  • Study of MEMS/micro­sys­tems tech­no­logy, elec­tro­nics engi­nee­ring, elec­tri­cal engi­nee­ring, mecha­ni­cal engi­nee­ring, phy­sics or a com­pa­ra­ble degree pro­gram
  • Basic know­ledge of micro­sys­tem domain, optics, inter­fe­ro­me­ters and/or digi­tal holo­gra­phic micro­scope is bene­fi­cial
  • Know­ledge of Lab­VIEW pro­gramming and/or gene­ral pro­gramming is an advan­tage
  • Self-moti­va­ted, goal-ori­en­ted, inde­pen­dent and struc­tu­red way of working is desi­red

What you can expect:

You will find a large net­work of experts working in an open and col­le­gial envi­ron­ment wit­hin the excel­lent Fraun­ho­fer rese­arch and deve­lop­ment infra­struc­ture. We offer an excit­ing, up-to-date the­sis posi­tion in which you can bene­fit from our expe­ri­en­ced team. Our excel­lent indus­try-rela­ted rese­arch and deve­lop­ment infra­struc­ture pro­vi­des you access to a large net­work of experts. You will become part of an inspi­ra­tio­nal inter­na­tio­nal work envi­ron­ment based on trust, crea­ti­vity and team spi­rit. We bes­tow upon you the res­pon­si­bi­lity for your the­sis pro­ject, ensu­ring you space for auto­no­mous work.

Work is plan­ned to be car­ried out in our office in Cott­bus. The the­sis is awar­ded over a Ger­man part­ner uni­ver­sity accord­ing to the hig­her edu­ca­tion laws of the respec­tive federal state.

Fraun­ho­fer is Europe’s lar­gest app­li­ca­tion-ori­en­ted rese­arch orga­niza­t­ion. Our rese­arch efforts are gea­red ent­i­rely to people’s needs: health, secu­rity, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, energy and the envi­ron­ment. As a result, the work under­ta­ken by our rese­ar­chers and deve­l­o­pers has a signi­fi­cant impact on people’s lives. We are crea­tive. We shape tech­no­logy. We design pro­ducts. We improve methods and tech­ni­ques. We open up new vis­tas.
