Job Title: Duplicate - US02905 - Senior Optical Engineer

JobID: 12540-136564#9280771

Location: Wilton, CT, 06897, USA

Description: ## Introduction

ASML 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. ASML in Wilton CT is seeking an Optical Engineer / Physicist in the Optical Sensor & Metrology Hardware Group 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.

## Job Description

Using optical engineering / physics knowledge and an understanding of the lithography / metrology equipment, this person’s responsibility may include: Being part of optical development team (responsible for product or testing equipment development) to find solutions to difficult technical problems in an efficient manner; 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; Development of alignment methods for complex optical systems; Development of tooling and test equipment to support optical sensor alignment methods; 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; Support the integrating of our newly designed sensor systems into ASML’s platforms; 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 ( ~ 15%) to Europe, Asia, and within the US can be expected.

## Education

Minimum MS in Optical Engineering, or Physics with an emphasis on optical system design and analysis is required.

## Experience

3-10 years of industry/research experience in optical module development. Candidate should have direct experience in the design, integration and test of optical systems or test equipment used to produce optical systems (i.e. hands on). Candidate will work with designers from supporting engineering disciplines in order to converge on an optimal design solution. Experience and strong knowledge in utilization of laser, SLM, other electro-optical devices. Have competencies in: geometrical optics, lens design, optical system design, lasers, imaging, Fourier optics, radiometry, polarization, aberration, optical testing, detectors and electro-optical devices. A proficiency of an optical design SW (Code V/Zemax/Light Tools/FRED) is highly desirable Hands-on skills of building optical system such as imaging, testing, alignment or detector system.

## Personal skills

Have strong written and oral communicative skills and a commitment to achieving results on time; Be able to identify primary technical needs from complex issues and derive needed requirements; Demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills; Be able to quickly acquire technical knowledge from documentation and on-the-job training and be capable of thoroughly investigating technical issues (analytically and hands-on in a lab); Be willing to own the integrated systems performance, and support the entire product life-cycle (development through sustaining engineering), strive to deliver the right design solution for the right cost at the right time.

## Context of the position

The Optical Sensor & Metrology Hardware Group in Wilton CT is seeking a well-rounded engineer with direct experience in optical engineering. 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.
