Introduction to the job

Do you have a creative analytical thinking and do you like to be challenged in the field of data analysis, diagnostics and system automation? If so then you will enjoy working in our EUV System transmission Control team! It’s a great opportunity for professional development and personal growth. Especially when you are a true self-starter who likes to understand highly complex optical systems and work on improving their efficiency

Role and responsibilities

Job Mission

As a lead physics design engineer, you are part of a multidisciplinary product development team (optical, thermal, mechanical, electrical, Fluid dynamics, software and industrialization) that designs and improves the transmission associated with EUV scanner.

You achieve your goals with creative solutions by understanding the physics of transmission and thus addressing diagnostics and (system) automation problems. This is to identify transmission losses in scanner and develop improvement strategies for power stability for our internal / external customers. Once the concept is understood, you detail and implement the design together with your multidisciplinary team and supplier(s).

This will require that you actively interact with your stakeholders inside and outside the group to understand design aspects, analyze system problems. Moreover, you will present your findings, your results and your plans to higher management.

The last step is to verify the design and work side by side with the industrialization team to also enable the efficient production and service activities.

Job Description

  • You will be a member of the EUV Optical Column team and will play a key role to bring the EUV Optical Column system performance to the required specification. Your main responsibilities to drive the optical transmission diagnostic roadmap are:
  • Understand physics of the data from field and factory source system performance and related customer issues
    Provide practical and automated solutions to improve source diagnostics/issues: calibration, performance or diagnostics tests.
  • Specify, identify risks and mitigate risks of possible solutions.
  • Co-create solutions with the software team on the implementation of the proposed functional solutions.
  • Test and qualify of implemented solutions.
  • Support the field and factory teams during the introduction phase of the new diagnostics / automation solutions
  • Support shaping the transmission monitoring roadmap with existing or future strategy
  • Documentation of all relevant information from specification to qualification of solutions, including lessons learned. Share the knowledge within your team.
  • Drive respective optical modules to deliver diagnostics
