IHP scientist Dr. Dawid Kot received Young Researcher Poster Award

Dr. Dawid Kot from IHP – Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics received the Young Researcher Poster Award at the “Forum on the Science and Technology of Silicon Materials 2018” in Okayama, Japan. He was awarded for his performance on presenting a joint publication on the “Comparison of experimental and modeling results on VOn formation at ultra-high temperature in silicon” with Siltronic, a Munich-based company, which is one of the top silicon wafer suppliers in the world and a cooperation partner of IHP since many years. The award honoures three aspects of presenting: the paper, the oral presentation of the paper and the poster about the paper. The award winners were choosen by a Committee of leading scientists in the field.

 

Dawid works at IHP since 2007 and researches in the field of defect engineering and gettering in silicon materials. In that field, the Forum organized by the 145th Committee on Processing and Characterization of Crystals of the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) is one of the leading conferences in the world and brings together leading scientists and young researchers on silicon materials every four years. To contribute to improvements in silicon and compound semiconductor crystal growth and wafer technologies, this committee develops new processing and characterization technologies while at the same time offering researchers and engineers forums for interaction.

The building and the infrastructure of the IHP were funded by the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union, funds of the Federal Government and also funds of the Federal State of Brandenburg.
