Co-op, PHD Chemistry/Surface Science (Fall 2021/Spring 2022 semester)
Research & development
In a nutshell
Wilton - CT, US
Research & development
No experience (Student)
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.
ASML is seeking a Fall 2021/Spring 2022 semester Surface science Co-op with expertise in chemistry and process engineering for 6 months. This person will join the Advanced development center in Wilton, Connecticut - A Research and development team focused on proto-typing of next generation wafer/reticle clamping systems.
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 candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.
The main focus of this position will be:
- Understand the existing coating techniques, Laser machining techniques, etching and other process engineering.
- Investigate and develop materials and process solutions extend/improve the wear, roughness and friction performance for refurbishing the wafer clamping systems.
- Investigate, material and chemical issues in bonding, gluing, coating and etching process.
- Solve any engineering challenges that we encounter related to chemical and material aspects of design and manufacturing process of optical and ceramic substrates to achieve the precision and life time performance at sub-nanometer scale.
- Investigate material issues/challenges using appropriate material diagnostic toolslike SEM, AFM, WLI etc.
- Clearly communicate progress and status of ongoing technical activities to senior management.
- Support preparation of design reviews for the development team;
- Write contamination control procedure and train technicians to efficiently implement the procedure in manufacturing.
Pursuing Phd degree in chemistry/related surface engineering fields or equivalent experience.
- 2-3 years of research experience.
- Strong background of course work, experimental and research background in chemistry, coating, etching & glass ceramic manufacturing and process engineering.
- Excellent Knowledge of electro-optical, mechanical properties of coatings and ceramic structure.
Theoretical and experimentalworking understanding with various coatingdeposition equipment (e.g., Sputter, E-beam, ALD, PECVD etc.).
- Good understandingand experience in verification methods (white light interferometer, microscope, SEM, AFM , TOF-SIMS, XPS etc).
- Knowledge of MATLAB and/or LabVIEW for data collection and analysis to drive solutions; Working knowledge of PID controllers.
- Ability to work in the clean room environment knowledge in material and material interaction (especially glass, ceramics, thin film materials, gases, etc); with deep understanding of the fundamentals of friction and wear processes of metallic, ceramic, and polymeric materials.
- Excellent experimental skills.
- Be able to interface with multidisciplinary groups and work effectively in a team and be willing to take on responsibility, follow through.
- Can observe and respond to people and situations and interact with others encountered in the course of work.
- Can learn and apply new information or skills.
- Must be able to read and interpret data, information, and documents.
- Strong customer focus and commitment to customer satisfaction through prioritization, quality, efficiency and professionalism.
- Ability to complete assignments with attention to detail and high degree of accuracy.
