Introduction to the job

We are looking for design engineers – Optics for the R&D department at ASML!

Are you eager to shape the future of ASML and create innovative new ideas? Do you have a Master or PhD in Physics with a strong optics background ? Are you eager to shape the future of ASML and create innovative new ideas? Would you like to work together in multi-disciplinary teams to improve our products and to enable our clients to create the world’s most advanced chips? Then this position might be the perfect fit for you!

Every day, you make use of technology that contains microchips. From smartphones and laptops to cars and airplanes. Technologies such as AI, robotic process automation and 5G will fuel the growth of the semiconductor industry even more. Since ASML is worldwide leader in high-end lithography systems for the semi-conductor industry, there’s a huge demand for our machines.


Role and responsibilities

ASML builds lithography systems that can place multiple layers on a chip with very high precision.

You will contribute to the development of leading edge light sources for optical systems by designing, creating, integrating and testing within the restrictions imposed by system specifications and planning considerations, enabling Moore’s Law.

As Design Engineer - Optics, You will create new designs and optical (measurement) systems that will become future ASML products. This includes scouting for new sensor and measurement technologies, creating concepts and designs, creating test setups and proto-tools and evaluating different solution directions.

Our departments

Optics is at the heart of everything we do at ASML. We have multiple opportunities for design engineers with an optical background. Within optics there are multiple specializations or departments that you could be selected for:

Research: Research department is responsible for bringingcreative ideas / concepts to technical solutions, ready for product development, enabling extension of Moore’s law and driving ASML’s long-term growth in semiconductor industry .

The Optical groups are responsible for all new optical sensor concepts,new designs and optical (measurement) systems that will become future ASML products.

EUV: The optical column is the heart of the EUV system, a technological miracle. Optical column comprises of many optical modules which are needed to guide the light to print the right image at the wafer which results into a chip. The department DE EUV Optical Column is responsible for delivery of the projection, illumination, dose control, and EUV light collection functions for the EUV machines. The department develops technical solutions, means and methods and competences to ensure these deliveries in all the different product phases.

Sensors / light department: Within the BM Sensors department, the Light Sources and Image Sensors group’s mission is to deliver high quality light and sensors. The group is responsible for the physical and optical design of these light sources and sensors for EUV and DUV machines.
