In a nutshell


San Jose - CA, US

Introduction to the job

The mission of this open position is to overcome the cutting edge semiconductor metrology and inspection challenges. As a Senior Research Engineer-Electron Optics, you will play a key role in electron optics system concept design for next generation e-beam metrology and inspection systems, and also take a critical responsibility to develop new critical technology and key module according to company’s electron beam technology and product roadmap.

This position may require access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export Administration Regulations (15 C.F.R. § 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require the Company to proceed with candidates who are immediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Role and responsibilities

Generate new electron optical design concept of electron optics system for next generation e-beam metrology and inspection systems.
Simulate electron optical properties and performances of electron optics systems, and optimize design to meet system performance requirements. This includes simulation of electron source and electron optics column. Make detailed simulation and design reports.
Define requirements for electronic modules controlling the electron optics system based on simulation.
Design control methods and algorithms for electron optical components.
Evaluate electronic and mechanical tolerance of electron optics system.
Develop new ideas to overcome design bottlenecks limiting the electron optical performance of the system.
Design experiments for evaluating electron optics performance in system platform. Analyze data and characterize resolution, probe current, distortion, and other optical characteristics.
Provide input to system specification, system error budget and interfaces.
Assemble and test electron optics sub-modules, and integrate the sub-modules into the full system.
Perform basic performance test on test bench, and write test reports.
Above Job responsibilities subject to change at any time
