Job Description:

Material Formulation Scientist
DescriptionThe successful candidate will work as a member of the product development group and interface with manufacturing teams in creating and sustaining NCAP (nematic curvilinear aligned phases) and PDLC (polymer dispersed liquid crystal) formulations used for liquid crystal-based metrology applications utilized in flat-panel display manufacturing. Relevant experience in formulating polymeric dispersions and coating wet films required.
Responsibilities

  • Develop new NCAP formulations for future products by selecting starting materials and defining processes to create optimally blended polymer + liquid crystal composite films.
  • Optimize electro-optical performance of NCAP materials to meet product goals.
  • While working closely with the manufacturing group, ensure robust statistical process control of NCAP formulations to ensure consistent electrooptical properties, thickness distributions, and low defectivity.
  • Drive failure analysis to identify the root cause of process excursions.
    Education/Experience
    • Master or higher degree in chemistry, chemical engineering, chemical physics, material science, or related field.
    • 2+ years of industrial experience working in interdisciplinary fields of material science and chemistry.
    • At least 2-years of experience in creating, characterizing, and coating polymeric dispersions and/or emulsions.
    • Knowledge of contamination control in cleanroom environments in formulating chemicals and applying films.
    • Basic analytical chemistry understanding: FTIR, UV-VIS, ICP-OES/MS, DLS
    • Plusses
    • Understanding and characterization of liquid crystal switching physics and basic principles of display technology.
    • Experience in statistical process control (SPC) and Design of Experiments (DOE).
    • Experience in transferring R&D work to scale-up manufacturing.
