Description

The Communications Technology Laboratories (CTL) at NIST is looking for a research assistant to work developing mm-wave components from complex oxides. This project will involve dc to 110 GHz complex permittivity and permeability characterization with on-wafer techniques, materials modeling (including finite element simulations, and theory), and the development of mm-wave and microwave components. To develop this program in oxide electronics, a successful applicant will have a solid background in programming (Matlab, Python, or equivalent). Experience with any of the following lock-amplifiers, vector network analyzers, resonators is preferred. The preferred candidates will want to gain experience with circuit simulators and device modeling, leveraging fundamental physics to create new technology.
