Are you looking for a Master Thesis project in Mechanical Engineering? Do you have affinity with Optics and Electronics? Then this assignment could be interesting for you!

Background Information

The department of Wafer Handling & Positioning in de Mechanical Development business line is a very diverse department of mechanical and hardware engineers. The development of new stages and also wafer handler is done by this department, together with other departments for neighboring areas of expertise such as control, thermal and flow. This department has a broad mix of exciting and new to be developed modules. The teams themselves are a mix of junior and senior team members who can enable your growth. The current growth of ASML is also reflected in this exciting group.

Your Assignment

For improved handling of a specific type of wafers, a new edge sensor concept is to be used. The edge sensor is used for measuring the horizontal position of the wafer so it can be corrected before exposure. The tasks are:
- Selecting the sensor concept layout for application in our machines;
- Designing a functional test setup for proving feasibility of the concept;
- Performing feasibility tests and integration of the setup;
- Concept design, incl. CAD and functional description, and a proposal for processing raw data to the desired wafer characteristic;
- Assist in interfacing with relevant stakeholders, such as suppliers, but also interfacing development departments such as Software;
- Reporting on deliverables and tasks above.

Your Profile

- You are a final year Master’s student in Mechanical Engineering.
- Mechatronics knowledge is a pre.
- Affinity with optics and electronics.
- Knowledge of CAD is required; NX is preferred.
