    Job Description

    Description:As Lockheed Martin's infrared (IR) center of excellence, Santa Barbara Focalplane designs and produces industry-leading sensors that guide the world's most advanced platforms-from advanced tactical fighters to satellites in high orbit. The Detector Research and Development department at Lockheed Martin - Santa Barbara Focalplane is currently searching for qualified Research Scientists to join our team focused on developing next-generation infrared barrier photo-detectors spanning from near-IR to long-wave IR.

    Expertise is desired in the development of linear-mode or Geiger-mode avalanche photodiodes (APDs), especially with a focus on testing and analysis of APD devices. Additional experience in other III-V semiconductor optoelectronic (photonic) devices such as P-I-N diodes, Schottky barrier photodiodes, heterojunction barrier photodiodes (nBn, XBn), phototransistors, lasers, or light emitting diodes (LEDs) is favorable
    The team member selected for this position will primarily perform process and material development for advanced barrier and other infrared detectors grown by molecular beam epitaxy.

    Typical R&D secondary responsibilities also include leading IRAD projects, providing technical direction, financial oversight, and customer interface for monthly presentations and/or final written reports. Work is performed on multiple IRAD and CRAD projects simultaneously in a dynamic environment. In addition, may assume project leadership for technology transfers from other business entities.
    Basic Qualifications:
    Bachelor's degree.

    The successful candidate shall possess experience in semiconductor materials and processing, and demonstrate extensive knowledge of device physics, devices and semiconductor wafer characterization techniques.

    Excellent written and verbal communication skills, and ability to work as part of a team and build effective relationships are essential.

    Experience in MATLAB coding and Microsoft PowerPoint presentation creation is required.

    Must be a US citizen in order to obtain entrance to facility.
    Desired Skills:
    Familiarity with III-V semiconductor wafer processing and/or with infrared focal plane array operation principles is highly desired. Familiarity with molecular-beam epitaxy growth is a plus.

    • Design, processing, and/or testing of linear-mode or Geiger-mode avalanche photodiodes (APDs)
    • III-V semiconductor optoelectronic (photonic) devices such as P-I-N diodes, Schottky barrier photodiodes, heterojunction barrier photodiodes (nBn, XBn), phototransistors, lasers, or light emitting diodes (LEDs)
