Senior engineer Marilyne Sousa joined the IBM Research - Zurich Laboratory in 2000. Involved in various projects ranging from the optimization of OLED materials to the optimization of oxides or III-Vs, she is currently a member of the Material Integration and Nanoscale Devices group and responsible for thin films material characterization using spectroscopic ellipsometry and transmission electron microscopy. In the frame of the TEM activity, she is interested in the application of machine learning algorithms to guide the data analyses.
She has also contributed to the Optical Waveguide and the Display Technology groups.
Prior to joining IBM Research, Marilyne was at Altis Semiconductor (now X-Fab), 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.
