Are you passionate about research? So are we! Come and join us

The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) is a Research and Technology Organization (RTO) active in the fields of materials, environment and IT. By transforming scientific knowledge into technologies, smart data and tools, LIST empowers citizens in their choices, public authorities in their decisions and businesses in their strategies. 


You ‘d like to contribute as an Intern? Join our Materials Research and Technology department 

Through its research into advanced materials and processes, the “Materials Research and Technology” (MRT) department, with its 200 researchers and engineers, contributes to the emergence of enabling technologies that underpin the innovation processes of local and international industry. MRT’s activities hinge on four thematic pillars: nanomaterials and nanotechnology, scientific instrumentation and process technology, structural composites, and functional polymers.

The department also includes four high-tech platforms, focusing on composites, prototyping, characterization and testing. These platforms serve both LIST research staff, and other stakeholders in Luxembourg.


How will you contribute?

The objective of the internship is to contribute to the process development for the fabrication of ECPR masters. The ECPR (ElectroChemical Pattern Replication) technology is an electrochemical lithography technique able to print micro/nano metallic structures over silicon wafers in one step. In this technique, a mold, called a master, is composed by patterned microcavities. Those microcavities are electrochemically prefilled with the metal to be transferred and then puts in contact with a substrate on which the pattern transfer or print has to be done. Before contact, an electrolyte is delivered onto the substrate. After contact, the print is triggered thanks to an electroplating reaction transferring the metal content of the master microcavities onto the substrate. The technology has been validated with copper. The fabrication of a mold is starting from a silicon wafer, which need to be processed through several microfabrication steps ending to the patterned microcavities. In this context, the candidate will have the opportunity to work in the LIST clean-room facilities (ISO4-ISO5) with state-of-the-art micro/nano fabrication equipment. He will use laser photolithography, E-beam metal evaporation, Inductively Couple Plasma-Reactive Ion Etching and/or Deep Reactive Ion Etching (ICP-RIE-DRIE) and usual characterization technics (Scanning Electron Microscopy, profilometry, …). Additionally, the candidate may be involved in Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and/or electroplating activities. The ideal duration of the internship should be 6 months
