EUV Source System Model Developer Internship (Summer 2020)
Research & development
In a nutshell
San Diego - CA, US
Research & development
No experience (Student)
Mechanical engineering, Electrical engineering
ASML US 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 Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

We design, develop, integrate, market and service advanced lithography machines, which enable our customers - the world’s leading chipmakers – to reduce the feature size and increase the functionality of their devices, which in turn leads global trends in electronics such as Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, 5G and generally more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations around the United States. We are currently recruiting for internships located at our office in San Diego, CA (EUV source center of excellence).
As the world’s leading semiconductor lithography systems manufacturer in the Semiconductor Industry, ASML enables our customers to continue to advance their own product development, driving cost down and ever-increasing functionality. This product development cycle has historically been called Moore’s Law, which states the density of transistors doubles every two years.To make this law a reality the features on the device must ‘shrink’ in physical size. ASML provided the machines that enable Moore’s Law to thrive. Additionally the machines we make require advanced sub-systems such as EUV Sources, , magnetically levitated stages with sub-nanometer accuracy, robotic mask delivery systems, mechatronic devices to shape and correct the laser illumination source, and optical modules that can detect sub-nanometer alignment errors and pattern distortions. Temperature stability must be controlled to milli-kelvins, particulate control to ensure defect-free imaging, and operating in vacuum, the technical challenges are endless. Solving these challenges requires expertise in photonics, plasma science, controls, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, embedded software engineering, optics, physics, manufacturing, industrialization, and more. If you like extreme challenges and want to help bring the next generation of technology to the world, then come join ASML!
This position requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
Internship Goals and Objectives:
- The 2020 project will be focused actively assisting in building a dynamical model of the EUV system.
- This includes coding (Matlab/Simulink), data analysis, and occasional participation in data acquisition activities.
- Work in a team environment alongside local experienced engineers.
- The goal of the internship is for you to learn about working in a corporate setting and to get you familiar with our products and their issues as you look for data.
- Interns will typically be required to document and present their findings as well as making an end of summer presentation to the group about what they achieved during their internship.
- MS or PhD student in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering (or equivalent) with emphasis in Controls/Dynamical Systems
- Good knowledge of controls theory (linear and non-linear) and dynamical systems theory
- Proficiency in signal processing (time and frequency domain)
- Experience in system identification techniques, both designing of experiments and implementation
- Extensive experience in Matlab and Simulink
- Experience with Python is preferred.
- Possess strong ownership characteristics and commitment to achieving results on time.
- Have strong English written and oral communicative skills
- Be a demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills
- Have strong problem solving skills and the ability to take initiative
- Be willing to be “wrong” at times and be open to the ideas of others
- Relocation assistance and/or housing is not provided for these internships.
We are committed to leveraging the diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences of our workforce to create opportunities for our people and the business. EOE
