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

The mission of the job is to overcome the challenges of semiconductor metrology and inspection. As an Electron Optics Engineer intern, you will play a key role in concept design and evaluation of e-beam metrology and inspection systems.

Job Description

  • Simulate electron optical performance of newly designed electron optics system using commercial electron optics simulation software, finite element modelling software and in-house simulation engines with self-written scripts and optimization algorithm;
  • Automate complexed electron optics simulation sequence and data analysis process using self-written scripts and optimization algorithm;
  • Analyze and understand the simulation results, modify and make suggestions to the architecture design, and define requirement of electronic modules which support the electron optics system;
  • Document the design notes, simulation results and SOPs into reports and other required formatted documents to share with mechanical design engineers, integration & testing engineers, and electrical engineers for communication and knowledge sharing;
  • Make plans and summarize progress based on project need;
  • Work with and provide simulation support to system engineers, application engineers, mechanical engineers and integration engineers; explain phenomena, analyze data and provide input from electron optics perspectives to help solve issues found during image testing and real applications.


Pursuing a PhD or Master degree in applied physics, optics or physics with a strong foundation in the fundamentals of physics and charged particle physics is required. Undergraduate & Graduate GPA ≥ 3.7 is preferred.


  • 3+ year experience of programming using Python/MATLAB/C++ is desired.
