| Your challenges?

You should have extensive thin film technology knowledge and actively contribute to the development of processes for new membranes, including the industrialization, and help to steer the process maturity improvements needed for manufacturing of existing membranes.

For the development of new thin film manufacturing processes definition of DOE’s, conducting experiments, characterization of layers/stacks and definition of follow-up investigations are part of the activities.

For the steering of the process development of thin film membranes and the industrialization of the manufacturing process of these membranes process analysis and product-process relation investigations are required; including assessment of process capability and control

Support and guide the development and industrialization of deposition technologies for extremely thin layers/stacks, structuring of these layers while providing the desired functionality.

Effectively use characterization methods to measure/characterize membrane films during the stages of the manufacturing process and correlate analysis results with the product performance.

Evaluation of the product performance of the membranes by functional testing.

Process development and industrialization is achieved by (guiding of) experimental testing, possibly at external facilities, and in cooperation with external partners in combination with extensive analysis.
