ASML US 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 Chandler Arizona, San Jose and San Diego California, Wilton Connecticut, and Hillsboro Oregon.

Job Mission

As the world's leading semiconductor lithography machine (the machinethat makes computer chips) manufacturer, ASML enables chip manufacturers tomake cheaper, faster chips, thereby enabling all the technology you use today.The machines we make require high speed, magnetically levitated stages withsub-nanometer accuracy, robotic mask delivery systems, mechatronic devices toshape and correct the laser illumination source, and optical modules that candetect sub-nanometer alignment errors and pattern distortions. Temperaturecontrolled to milli-kelvins, particulate free, and operating in completevacuum, the technical challenges are endless. Solving these challenges requiresexpertise in servo controls, mechatronics, mechanical engineering, electricalengineering, embedded software engineering, optics, physics, manufacturing,industrialization, and more. If you like extreme challenges and want to helpbring the next generation of technology to the world, then come join ASML.

Thisposition requires access to controlled technology, as defined in the Export AdministrationRegulations (15 C.F.R. * 730, et seq.). Qualified candidates must be legallyauthorized to access such controlled technology prior to beginning work.Business demands may require ASML to proceed with applicants who areimmediately eligible to access controlled technology.

Job Description

Summer 2020 Internship Goals andObjectives:

  • Work in a team environment alongside local experienced engineers
  • Specific tasks will be tailored to match the education / experience level of the intern as well as the interns learning objectives for the summer
  • The 2020 project will be to modify and qualify an existing 2-lens IR metrology tool used in research for the next generation platform including the following:
    • IR imaging quality analysis, energy measurement accuracy, optical part selection
    • Bench test of the modified module: demonstrate 2-lens or other preferred design allows far field and intermediated focus imaging of the IR
    • Tolerancing of the optics in terms of thermal expansion, vibration, etc.
    • Mechanical design of the movable supporting stage and CAD
    • Analysis of the thermal load/vibration/vacuum
    • Bench test of the fit of the mechanical part, leak test, and verify interfaces of the module are all working
    • The goal of the internship is for you to learn about working in a corporate setting and to provide hands on experience solving real world problems in a team environment
    • Interns will typically be required to document and present their findings as well as making an end of summer presentation to the group about what they achieved during their internship
  • Current active Master's level students in Optical Engineering and/or Mechanical Engineering with an optical focus/emphasis with a GPA of 3.0 or above.

Candidate must:

  • Must have strong Matlab and/or Python skills.
  • Possess strong ownership characteristics and commitment to achieving results on time
  • Have strong English written and oral communicative skills
  • Be a demonstrated "team player" with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills
  • Have strong problem solving skills and the ability to take initiative
  • Be willing to be "wrong" at times and be open to the ideas of others
Other information
