Senior engineer Marilyne Sousa joined the IBM Research - Zurich Laboratory in 2000. She is a member of the Advanced Functional Materials group and performs structural characterization of thin oxide films and III-V materials for high-mobility channels for technology nodes smaller than 14 nm.
She has also contributed to the Optical Waveguide and the Display Technology groups.
Prior to joining IBM Research, Marilyne was at Altis Semiconductor, France, where she was an optical characterization engineer working on materials for field effect transistors and memory devices. Before that, she spent one year working in a joint project between Jobin-Yvon and Laboratoire pour l'Utilisation du Rayonnement Electromagnetique (LURE) on the development of an optical profilometer.
Marilyne took her Master's degree in Optics and Photonics from the University of Orsay, France, in 1998.
