Veldhoven, Netherlands

Experience

No experience (Student)

Degree

Master

Job Category

Physics, Chemistry & materials science, Mathematics

Introduction

Are you a Master student in Physics, Applied Mathematics or Chemistry? Do you have previous experience using Matlab? Do you have an interest in nanoparticles and surface science? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Job Mission

These internships positioned within the defectivity department which is responsible for the plasma and surface interaction of the ASML machines as well as the defect performance of the ASML machines. Part of this work involves understanding how plasma-surface system behaves in ASML machines and suggests solutions for preventative measures. In addition it involves understanding how particles behave in ASML machines and suggest solutions to prevent these particles to become a defectivity issue.

Job Description

There are two internship positions within the plasma & particle physics group

1st position:
Your focus in this internship will be on particles adhesion on surfaces. You will apply theoretical models from literature to the current situations at ASML and help shape our knowledge on particle behavior. One of the challenges you will focus on is to predict particle adhesion while coping with multiple unknows of the systems under study. You will work on the following:

  • Understanding of adhesive forces between particles and surface.
  • Computation algorithms to tackle poorly defined systems.
  • Programming in Matlab.
  • Defectivity in ASML machines.
  • Simulation of experimental data.
  • Model defectivity solutions.

2nd position:
Your focus through this internship will be on plasma and surface interactions. You will apply theoretical models from literature to the current situations at ASML and help shape our knowledge on plasma-surface system. One of the challenges you will focus on is to predict underlying mechanisms while coping with multiple unknows of the systems under study. You will work on the following:

  • Understanding of plasma surface reaction mechanisms.
  • Programming in MATLAB and simulations.
  • Model chemical defectivity and optical lifetime solutions.

Education

  • You are a Master student in (Applied) Physics, Applied Mathematics, Chemistry or Engineering (Materials Science/Nanomechanics).
  • You have previous experience using Matlab.
  • You have an interest in nanoparticles and surface science. Having affinity with statistics is preferred.
  • You are an independent and hardworking person with an ambition to deliver on time.

This is an master apprentice internship for 4-5 days a week with a duration between 3-6 months. The starting date of the internship 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.

Other information

What ASML offers
Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment. You will receive a monthly internship allowance based on your educational level and number of days per week, plus a possible housing or travel allowance. More information on the allowances can be found on our website. In addition you will get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

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.

How will you be part of progress?
