Introduction

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.

Job Mission

ASML is seeking an Surface science intern with expertise in chemistry and process engineering. 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.

Job Description

The main focus of this position will be:

  • Understand particle & molecularcontaminantstransport mechanism in product and test equipment.
  • Characterize type and amount of contamination by collecting contamination samples and performingrelevant tests.
  • Investigate cleaning methods by using proper materials, equipment, and processes without sacrificing product performance.
  • Develop methods to determine the degree of cleanliness, and validate cleaning efficacy.
  • Implement contamination budgeting and monitoring throughout the process.
  • 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.

Education

  • Minimum: Pursuing final year in bachelors/master’s degree in chemistry/related surface engineering fields, or equivalent experience.
