Introduction to the job ASML US, LP brings together the most
creative minds in science and technology to develop lithography
machines that are key to producing faster, cheaper, more
energy-efficient microchips. We design, develop, integrate, market
and service these advanced machines, which enable our customers -
the world's leading chipmakers - to reduce the size and increase
the functionality of their microchips, which in turn leads to
smaller, more powerful consumer electronics. Our headquarters are
in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and we have 18 office locations
around the United States including main offices in Wilton, CT,
Chandler, AZ, San Jose, CA and San Diego, CA. This position
requires 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
ASM0L to proceed with applicants who are immediately eligible to
access controlled technology. Role and responsibilities We have
unique and exciting opportunity to join our Technology Development
team, focused on conceiving and demonstrating the technologies
required for next generations of high-power extreme ultraviolet
(EUV) light sources. Based on a laser produced plasma (LPP), our
light source relies on a wide range of unique and challenging
technologies, ranging from laser light amplification and high-power
optical systems to laser produced plasma for EUV generation,
electro-optical signal detection and algorithm-based actuation for
process control. You are invited to bring your passion, knowledge
and expertise in areas of applied physics, plasmas, metrology,
optics, controls, lasers, and experiment design to push the
boundaries of these technologies forward. A key ingredient in the
EUV generation process is a stable source of molten tin droplets.
These droplets provide the fuel for the laser-produced plasma and
serve as the heart-beat for synchronizing the EUV source. The
challenge is to reliably produce nearly perfect droplets of molten
tin at a rate of tens of thousands of times per second with speeds
of 10's of m/s and position stability within a fraction of a
droplet diameter. If these dimensions were scaled up to the game of
golf, this would be equivalent to continuously scoring hole-in-ones
in a hole that's 25 km away in swirling gas flows and a plasma
that's hotter than the surface of the sun. The successful candidate
will be comfortable operating in this diverse mix of physics,
engineering and materials science, in order to define the droplet
generator architecture for next generations of the EUV source. The
successful candidate have a passion for innovation, be driven by
curiosity, and have deep understanding of fundamental physics.
Duties and Responsibilities: Drive discovery of evolution of
chemical species of related to future EUV droplet generation
Design and perform analytical and electrochemical experiments to
Identify key scientific learning objectives and define
corresponding experimental design to arrive at design guidelines,
performance requirements and procedures to product teams.
Identification of key scientific learning objectives and
corresponding experimental design which will further the
technological progress of the EUV generation process.
Demonstration of system-wide performance targets to meet the future
Develop and execute system and subsystem performance tests, analyze
test results and extract actionable knowledge from sub-module to
Make recommendation material handling protocols for high pressure
droplet generator operation.
Troubleshoot issues with lasers, tin delivery, and optical systems
in order to improve the EUV generation process.
Document learning and communicate knowledge to engineering and
product development teams to guide product improvement and release
of new product nodes.
Work independently and in teams to deliver on a stated objective,
whether it be the pursuit of new knowledge, the demonstration of a
new capability, or the characterization of existing
Perform other duties as assigned or required.
Education and experience
PhD with relevant experience in material science, electrochemistry,
high pressure chemistry, chemical engineering or similar.
Solid understanding of electrochemistry, chemical and physical
processes in flow systems, sonochemistry.
Strong fundamentals on chemical kinetics and thermodynamics.
Deep understanding of scientific research methods and strong
scientific curiosity, with demonstrated knowledge in metrology
development and data analysis.
Hands-on experience building electrochemical experiments.
Experience/knowledge of microfluidics, liquid jet breakup and
droplet coalescence in particular; piezoelectricity and acoustics
is a plus.
Extensive experience with experimental data analysis, and
development of data analysis and data acquisition.
Demonstrated communication skills with colleagues/peers and
Ability to clearly and logically communicate ideas and knowledge
audiences with diverse backgrounds.
Demonstrated ability to manage and lead a research project
involving multiple stakeholders and constraints.
Demonstrated ability to work effectively as a part of a team and
lead investigation and research efforts.
Skills 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 to 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. You'll have the flexibility and
trust to choose how best to tackle tasks and solve problems.
