No experience (Student)



Job Category

Optical engineering, Physics, Mathematics


Are you an analytical oriented Master student in Physics, Optics or Mathematics? Then this internship assignment could be interesting for you!

Job Mission

To improve the imaging performance of ASML scanners, Lens Models are applied. Lens Models calculate optimal positions of lens elements in the projection optics. The lens model under investigation is used in our EUV scanners and balances between optical performance, throughput and mechatronics performance.

Job Description

As an intern working within the EUV projection team, you will be responsible for investigating and proposing an additional optimization method in a lens model, taking into account the mechatronic effects.

The assignment is divided following stages:
• Familiarize with context and the lens model;
• Create better understanding of the parameters that currently cause the mechatronic performance loss;
• Investigate alternative optimization method(s);
• Implement and test the alternative method(s) based on simulation


• You are a Master student in Mathematics, Physics or Optics
• You have good knowledge of MATLAB
• You are analytical oriented and autonomous
• The English language is required.

This is a Master apprentice or graduation internship for 5 days a week with duration of 6 to 9 months. The start date is as soon as possible.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

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 applications 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. At ASML we are always pushing technology further.

Students: Getting ready for the real-world
Teamwork is key within ASML. Our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong and worldwide we form one big team with over 25,000 employees. These colleagues have 123 different nationalities and work at our major sites on three continents.

Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule. In this inspiring 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 and get a feel for that excites you most. Use your education, gain real-life working experience and explore the world of high-tech – all at the same time.
