Job Title: Senior Optical Design and Modeling Engineer

JobID: 12540-req1734#9638494

Location: Wilton, CT, 06897, USA

Description: ## **Introduction**

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 and San Jose, CA.

## **Job Mission**

ASML in Wilton CT is seeking an Optical Engineer / Physicist in the Optical Modules Development Group US to work with a multi-discipline engineering team to define and develop optical / photonic sensor systems and/or test equipment used within ASML’s photolithography and/or metrology equipment. These systems typically include light sources, detectors, optical / electro-optical components, fiber optics, electronics and signal processing SW. Understanding the components in their relation to the sensor system function and understanding the interaction with the rest of the metrology or lithography system is of fundamental importance. The optical modules developed for ASML’s products will include sources, detectors, geometric/diffractive optics and electro-optic components. This position will require skills in optical systems engineering: specific to the optical lithography or semi-conductor industry.

## **Job Description**

The main focus of this position will be:

Develop clear understanding of the physical operation of high end optical sensors
Using combination of standard tools (CodeV, FRED, Lumerical FDTD) and modeling in a MATLAB environment, generate accurate physical optics models to predict high end sensors performance;
Use developed modeling to support design refinements, nominal predictions and tolerancing.
Decomposition of top-level system requirements into lower level module, sub-module, or component level design specifications for product or test equipment towards the engineering team
Deriving specifications for module, sub-module, or test equipment consistent with our manufacturing practices
Use developed models to support proto build validation and production build factory and field issues resolution.
Preparation of leading system engineer documentation (Element Performance Specifications, Element Design Specifications, Test Performance Specification; Test Analysis Reports) through review, release and change control
Support preparation of design reviews for the development team
Write engineering procedure and train technicians to efficiently transfer the build/ alignment & test process to manufacturing.
Supporting systems in the factory and in the field, by being able to relate observed sensor anomalies to potential system defects
Clearly communicating progress and status of ongoing technical activities to senior management
Understanding how the performance of the sensor system affects the performance of ASMLs equipment
Some travel ( ~ 10%) to Europe, Asia, and within the US can be expected.

## **Education**

* Minimum MS in Optical Engineering, or Physics with an emphasis on optical design and physical optics modeling and computation or equivalent experience.

* Ph.D in optical engineering or optical physics is preferred. Candidates with MS in optical engineering or optical physics with up to 3 years experience in optical design and/or physical optics modeling will be considered.

## **Experience**

* Experience with optical design and tolerance of optical systems.

* In depth experience with at least 2 of the 3 items list: CodeV and/or Zemax; FRED and/or ASAP; MATLAB.

* Be able to understand the physical operation of complex optical sensors and generate detailed modeling and simulation of their output signals. For example sensors that use a moiré type of detection and can resolve less than 1:10000.

## **Personal skills**

* Have strong written and oral communicative skills and a commitment to achieving results on time;

* Demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills;

* Be able to interface with multidisciplinary groups and work effectively in a team and be willing to take on responsibility, follow through and keep multiple simultaneous assignments on schedule;

* Be able to quickly acquire technical knowledge from documentation and on-the-job training and be capable of thoroughly investigating analytically technical issues.
