ASML Senior Scientist Expert on Scanner Lifetime and Defectivity in Veldhoven, Netherlands

Introduction

Are you challenged by demanding projects in a multidisciplinary context? Do you have the technical capabilities to provide innovative solutions? Does contributing to the world’s most advanced lithography machines makes you feel responsible and proud? Then this might be the right opportunity for you.

Job Mission

ASML Research department is responsible for the generation of long term value by identifying breakthroughs that fit the roadmap of semiconductor lithography and the lithography related markets. Innovative technical solutions are needed for future expected problems both in EUV systems and DUV systems. Defectivity program is one of the central challenges for scanner physics and tool defectivity, more specifically the overlap between OLT and defectivity.

ASML Research is looking for a Senior Scientist who will be the Expert on Scanner Lifetime and Defectivity.

Job Description
  • Develop a test methodology/protocol for proper screening of materials intended for use in the construction of scanners.
  • The work will comprise in synthesizing from the learnings of: plasma modelling, scanner defectivity investigation and experimental plasma-material investigation the needs and steps needed to derive a material testing methodology. This methodology will allow testing faster than 7 years in a representative manner.
  • The candidate will also serve as the link between RE and DE/SE to align on progress, needs and steps.
Education

PhD in relevant topic

Experience
  • 5+ years of ASML experience is preferred.
  • Good knowledge and understanding of EUV scanners.
  • Good knowledge of the challenges imposed with respect to lifetime of optics, requirements for contamination and defectivity.
Personal skills
  • Good communicator
  • Used to work in multi-disciplinary team
  • Solution minded approach: capable to define solutions within the Research setting, that equally contributes to solutions of problems of various Development & Engineering partners.
Context of the position
