Are you a student with a background of Physics, Mathematics or Data Science? Do you have experience in MATLAB and experimental physics? Then this internship might be interesting for you!

Background information

The EUV dose control functional group focuses on delivering the requested amount of light for wafer exposure. We deploy various types of sensor to measure, calibrate and control EUV light at source, reticle and wafer levels.

Our challenge is to measure the light accurately while spending as little time as possible. Dose control engineers study the field machine behavior, create models, test the algorithm with different boundary conditions, and propose improvements. We would like to further improve the performance of our algorithm with your help.

Your assignment

As an intern within the EUV dose control group, you will:

  • investigate the sensor calibration data;
  • improve the existing algorithm;
  • build up an offline calibration test to optimize the model input parameters.

Your profile

To be the perfect match for this internship, you:

  • have proficient experience in MATLAB;
  • experience in experimental physics and devices fabrication;
  • are fluent in English, both verbal and written.

This is a bachelor or master apprentice or graduation internship with a minimum duration of 4 months, 5 days per week, starting as soon as possible.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.

This position requires access to U.S. controlled technology, as defined in the United States Export Administration Regulations. Qualified candidates must be legally authorized to access such U.S. controlled technology prior to beginning work. Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to access U.S. controlled technology.

In addition to a monthly internship allowance of maximum €600 (plus a possible housing or free public transport), you’ll get practical guidance from experts in the field and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic team environment.

ASML: be part of progress
ASML is a high-tech company headquartered in the Netherlands. We manufacture the complex lithography machines that chipmakers use to produce integrated circuits, or computer chips. What we do is at the heart of all the electronic devices that keep us informed, entertained and connected. Every day, you use electronics that simply wouldn’t exist without our machines.

Behind ASML’s innovations are engineers who think ahead. The people who work at our company include some of the most creative minds in physics, electrical engineering, mathematics, chemistry, mechatronics, optics, mechanical engineering, and computer science and software engineering.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do – not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

We’re a global team of 32,000 people of 118 different nationalities and counting. Headquartered in Europe’s top tech hub, the Brainport Eindhoven region in the Netherlands, our operations are spread across Europe, Asia and the US.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country – or even working for a different company.

How will you be part of progress?
