Clement Merckling obtained in 2007 a PhD in Material Sciences from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon in France. His PhD thesis between INL/CNRS laboratory and ST Microelectronics company was focused on the Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) of oxides on Si substrates for high-k gate dielectrics in advanced CMOS devices.
During the period 2007 - 2013, he worked as scientist and then as senior scientist, driving the Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) activities @ imec including III-V semiconductors heteroepitaxy, high-k oxide growth and passivation studies for high-m channels (III-V & GeSn).
In 2013, as a principal member of technical staff, he took the technical lead of III-V epitaxy activities for the IMEC Logic and Photonic programs, focusing on the selective area growth of III-V compounds on Silicon by Vapor Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE). Through the fundamental understanding of the heteroepitaxial processes, world-first III-V FinFET devices and III-V Laser devices monolithically integrated on Silicon were demonstrated at IMEC.
Since 2018, he is focusing on exploratory materials grown by MBE and Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) for beyond CMOS devices.
