Introduction to the job

In the position of plasma engineer at ASML, you are responsible for solution of the particle and molecular contamination challenges in Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Scanner by application of plasma related knowledge. You will also further develop and sustain this knowledge. Furthermore, you are responsible for formulation and experimental/ modeling verification of hypothesis of production release transport and deposition of particles assisted by plasma, electrostatics, chemical etching as well as other related processes.

Role and responsibilities

  • Thorough analyses of the existing data of EUV scanner both internal and at customer
  • Use of this analysis as an input for a new tool design or problem solution
  • Work in the team to suggest containing of the existing problems and propose long term solutions
  • Design and development of experiments and supporting modeling
  • Depending on the required performance specification of the experiment, work out the installation design
  • Come up with means and methods to realize your task
  • Share your knowledge effectively with the members of the program and department
  • Focus area will be plasma investigation in the presence of EUV in low pressure environment in combination with material interfaces, low level contaminants and small particles.

Education and experience

Academic background, Master or PhD in physics, electrical engineering or chemistry.
Knowledge of electrostatics, plasma technology and/or surface chemistry is preferred, as well as hands-on experience with high vacuum systems.


Working at the cutting edge of tech, you’ll always have new challenges and new problems to solve – and working together is the only way do that. You won’t work in a silo. Instead, you’ll be part of a creative, dynamic work environment where you’ll collaborate with supportive colleagues. There is always space for creative and unique points of view.
