ASML YieldStar Sensor Integration Engineer in Linkou, Taiwan


ASML Linkou Factory is seeking a Physicist/Engineer integration and support for optical / photonic sensor systems used within ASML’s metrology tools. These systems typically include light sources, detectors, optical / electro-optical components, fiber optics, electronics and signal processing SW functioning in close collaboration with the rest of the tool. Understanding the components in their relation to the sensor system and understanding the interaction with the rest of the tool is of fundamental importance.

Job Description

Key component of this position are: o Using general Physics, Electronics, and SW knowledge and understanding of the sensor systems and tool to integrate and de-bug new and existing sensors in the metrology system o Integrating newly designed sensor system in new and existing metrology tools o Supporting systems in the factory and in the field, by being able to relate observed sensor anomalies to potential system defects. The majority of this work is done remotely at ASML o Processing large amounts of tool data to determine and isolate anomalous behavior o Setting up root cause analyses down to sensor component level starting from a system level issue o Developing and executing plans for investigating and resolving system and sensor level issues o Clearly communicating progress and status of ongoing investigations o Understanding how the performance of the sensor system affects the performance of the overall lithography tool. o Developing alignment procedures and providing guidance to manufacturing o Developing test plans for system qualification and de-bugging Travel: Substantial travel (1 – 2 years to USA) initially required during a training phase. Nominal travel ( 10%) to Europe, Asia, and within the US can be expected on a routine basis.


Minimum: MS in Physics or other Engineering discipline, with an emphasis on optical system, electronics or SW design and analysis. PhD preferred.

  • Experience in working with engineers across disciplines to develop reliable, robust systems. Strong emphasis on design for diagnostics / design for testability to maximize equipment availability.
Personal skills

Candidate must: o Have strong written and oral English communication skills and a commitment to achieving results on time; o Be able to break down complex problems with limited data to come to solutions – strong critical thinking capability; o Be willing to jump in on new issues, get to the bottom of the causes and propose practical solutions; o Be competent in and/or have affinity with: optical design and electro-optical devices, detection electronics, electrical and SW data processing; o A working knowledge of MatLab and/or Labview for data collection and analysis; o 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; o 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);
