ASML brings together the most creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT, Chandler, AZ and San Jose, CA.


Job Mission

We are presenting you with a unique and exciting opportunity to join a dynamic and innovative Technology Development team, focused on conceiving and demonstrating the technologies required for next generations of high-power extreme ultraviolet (EUV) light sources. Based on a laser produced plasma (LPP), our light source relies on a wide range of unique and challenging technologies, ranging from tin droplet formation and laser light amplification to tin debris disposal and EUV collection. You are invited to bring your passion, knowledge and expertise in areas of applied physics, optics, photonics, lasers to push the boundaries of these technologies forward.


Job Description

-Conceive, design, build and develop prototype high power pulsed laser amplification, metrology and delivery systems
-Troubleshoot issues with laser and optical systems
-Plan, develop and execute system and subsystem performance tests, analyze test results and extract actionable knowledge on optical system design
-Document learning and communicate knowledge to product development teams to guide product improvement and development
-Provide product design guidelines, performance requirements and procedures to product teams

Education & Experience

 -PhD or MS degree with 5+ years of relevant experience in laser physics, optics, photonics or equivalent field
