Role and responsibilities

Suggest a preferable image solution for critical layers driven by foundry customers.
Evaluate critical layers that can be superiorly printed by high-NA in terms of image performances and cost.
Build and compare patterning process flows.

Optimization of lithographic image systems especially for EUV
Comparing different patterning process options
Assessment of various resolution enhancement technologies
Emulation of patterning processes

Education and experience


5-10 years’ experience on lithographic modeling/simulation, OPC/computational lithography, optical programming, lithography-related process emulation
