The program aims to give master's candidates insight and knowledge into HHV’s R and D and manufacturing activities. They will also receive a certificate of internship and gain critical knowledge and skills related to vacuum technology which is an essential requirement for getting placed at HHV. HHV’s research activities include:
Equipment based research that includes developing new types of equipment such as the Plasma Atomic Layer Deposition system, advanced functionality vacuum coating equipment, and developing gadgetry for vacuum coating units such as magnetrons, ion guns, and effusion cells. As part of the development process we also research application and process development.
Thin films and optics research projects including the design and development of ITO coatings for transparent heaters used in the defense sector, plate-up technology for metallized circuits for space applications, and infrared anti reflection coatings for night vision optics.
Those selected for the program will receive extensive classroom and practical training on the fundamentals of vacuum science and thin-film technology, after which they will work on a month long project. At the end of the program, the selected candidates are required to give a presentation on their project/ research work and submit a project report.
