Graduation assignment: Feasibility study of a novel method to calibrate heating effects



Mechanical engineering

In a nutshell


Veldhoven, Netherlands


No experience (Student)



Job Category

Physics, Mathematics, Mechanical engineering


Do you want to see how physics and mathematics enables Moore’s law? then this Master graduate project could be interesting for you.

Job Mission

In ASML EUV lithography systems, wafers are subjected to various heat loads. In order to achieve the required performance, the impact of these heat loads on system performance must be understood and corrected for. Within the metrology department, we design controlstrategies to cope with this challenge. Aspects of system control and physics modeling are essential ingredients in the design of those strategies.

Job Description

The assignment is to investigate the feasibility of a new method to calibrate the impact of heating. Physics modeling is combined with analyzing machine data in order to match theory and measurements from the system.


You are a Master graduate student in Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics or System control. Affinity with physics modeling/control theory and MATLABis required. We offer an highly innovative environment with plenty room for own initiatives and ideas. The English language, both written and verbally, is required.

This is a Master graduation project for 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 6 months. The start date will be in January 2020.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

Other information

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 500 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

ASML: Be part of progress
We make machines that make chips – the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

Students: Getting ready for real-world R&D
Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents. Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that excites you most. Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?

How will you be part of progress?
