2024 SVC Foundation Scholarship Awarded to Jorge Luis Vazquez Arce

Jorge received a B.S. and M.S. in Engineering at Universidad Autónoma de Baja California before pursuing a Ph.D. at CICESE. His Ph.D. research focuses on atomic layer deposition (ALD) of solid electrolytes for energy storage, which has provided hands-on experience in operating advanced vacuum systems and applying this knowledge to the precise fabrication of thin films. He also uses characterization techniques, such as SEM, XPS, and TEM, to study these films.

He says, “In my academic journey, I have contributed to 15 publications, with five as the first author. These works have played a pivotal role in enhancing my understanding of the multifaceted applications of vacuum technology. My aspirations span across both academia and industry, as my goal is to contribute to the ever-evolving landscape of vacuum coating technology. Taking my initial steps in this direction, I have collaborated with the ellipsometry R&D department from Semilab and completed an introductory workshop at the Fraunhofer Institutes for Center Nanoelectronics Technologies and All Silicon System Integration Center in Dresden. Furthermore, I am about to embark on a research stay at the Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research in Dresden, where I will continue to develop my skills working with various vacuum technology devices. This additional experience will significantly enrich my knowledge and expertise in this field.”
