And you will interact daily with 4,000 like-minded professionals. At the ASML Source Performance department, a little flexibility and commitment can go a long, long way.

Job Description

In the source vessel several kilowatts of IR laser power are partly converted into EUV radiation. The EUV radiation needs to be collected and transmitted to the scanner, while the IR radiation needs to be absorbed and not transmitted to the scanner and the laser. The interaction of laser light and EUV radiation with the vessel and optics has to be modeled in order to improve the design of the vessel. As Optical Engineer EUV Collection you will play a key role within the multidisciplinary EUV Collection project, as the expert on EUV transmission and radiation management in the source vessel. Your main responsibility will be to model the radiation, and to optimize the optical properties of the source vessel.
You will use existing models to optimize the designs, and maintain and optimize the models itself.
During all this you will be cooperating with other disciplines where it is expected that you drive design aspects, analyze system problems, and support and plan issue resolution with peers. Furthermore, you will report the progress of above activities to the main stakeholders: the EUV Collection project leader, the EUV collection function owner, the EUV Collection architect, and the Tin management project leader.


MSc or PhD degree in one of the following: Physics, Optics, Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics, Mechanical Engineering.


From ~0-2 years relevant experience in an optical design/modeling role in an industrial setting.

Personal skills

ASML Development and Engineering department is a very big department with a lot of interaction. A person needs business sense to prioritize his/her work and needs to be able to handle some chaos every once and a while. It is very important that the person keeps his/her goal on the radar and understands that even though barriers may seem large sometimes, those barriers need to be concurred and the person should understand which stakeholders in his/her environment can help with this.
This goal orientation is also key since in a big company like ASML a lot of processes are used to roll out the deliverables of a development team in proper way, handling these processes is very important, but not the goal in itself.
Though in every ASML department you work in teams, you also need to take a lot responsibility over your work. This means that you need to be self-propelling where an entrepreneurial mindset will help you a long way.
English is our home language and needless to say that you need good communication skill to work in teams, handle stakeholders and train multicultural teams all over the world.
