ASML Application Design Engineer in Veldhoven, Netherlands


You are looking for the highly dynamic environment of a new product line where you will take an active role in shaping this new application? The YieldStar is ASML’s wafer metrology tool that delivers the highest performance.The next step for this scatterometry based tool will be to provide customers with full profile reconstruction enabling them to measure the critical dimensions (CD) and overlay (OV) of the patterns within the device structures on their product wafers at various stages in their processing. You can be part of this.

Job Mission

As an Application Design Engineer you will get the responsibility to improve Yieldstar’s capability to conduct on customer product wafers at resolution metrology (ARM). Knowledge of the technical possibilities and its challenges will make you an expert on ARM scatterometry. This knowledge enables you to find solutions for our customer metrology needs. Designing and developing solutions will be a part of your job as well as being involved in long term development together with reconstruction experts.

Job Description
