Designed and built an ultra high vacuum (UHV) wafer bonding unit to integrate dissimilar materials suitable for electronic and optical properties measurements, fracture mechanical testing, and structural characterization by electron microscopy. There are only two other similar instruments in the world: at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the University of Tokyo Dr. Kim's unit is the one capable of synthesizing planar interfaces (for metals, ceramics and semiconductors) suitable for both microscopy and quantitative interface strength measurements with both control of interface orientation and additional element chemistry.
