Functional Designer - Metrology

In a nutshell


San Jose - CA, US


*This requisition is a pipeline requisition in anticipation of potential needs.

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.

As a part of ASML HMI’s D&E Sensing and Machine Metrology team, you will develop and realize functional solutions that are instrumental to have our e-beam machines operating productively while maintaining nanometer accuracy. As an designer your mission is to find the optimal design and work with the team to obtain the required results within the constraints of the project. You also contribute to the function roadmap, to support the ASM HMI product roadmap.

Job Description

ASML HMI’s e-beam systems deliver nanometer resolution at high productivity. The required accuracy level cannot be achieved by hardware and mechatronics solutions only.At system level, imperfections of the subsystems need to be measured and corrected. The Metrology Functional Group creates mathematical models describing the lithography machine and its imperfections. The parameters of these models are calibrated using several sensors present in the machine. The calibrations of the machine can be done offline in a dedicated calibration test, or inline while running production. Afterwards, the calibrated parameters are used to control the machine in such a manner that the inaccuracies are corrected.

Metrology solutions incorporate systems design concerns that cover the spectrum from development, realization, integration, manufacturing, installation, to field and factory support.

To advance our metrology competence is another aspect of the work. This way we stay on top of what’s required to assure the timely delivery of state of the art solutions for ASML HMI’s product roadmap.


MSc, PDEng or PhD in Mathematics, Physics, or Computer Science


  • At least three years of development experience in a technical product development context or equivalent academic environment is required.
  • Experience with mathematical modeling and MatLab, and experience in a technical product development are a pre.
  • Understanding and experience with software development teams, but also with system engineering is also a pre.

Personal skills

  • We expect you to be an excellent communicator, team player, self-starter, to take initiative and to be result oriented.
  • As a designer we expect you to show to be quick learning and ready to take the initiative

Context of the position

This position is within the D&E Department, which is responsible is responsible for the specification, design, implementation, and integration and testing of the ASML HMI’s e-beam inspection and metrology products. The sensing and machine metrology functional group is responsible for the measurements, models and calibrations which are required for optimal image positioning and image quality.
