Position Location: 
Wilton, Conn.
Job Description: 


ASML is seeking an Optical Engineer with expertise in the area of Physical Optics Modeling to join the Optical Design and development group in Wilton Ct. Main job function to produce accurate physical optics models to predict performance of high end lithography tools sensors.
The main focus of this position will be:
o Develop clear understanding of the physical operation of high end optical sensors;
o 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;
o Use developed modeling to support design refinements, nominal predictions and tolerancing.
o Use developed models to support proto build validation and production build factory and field issues resolution.
Some travel ( ~ 10%) to Europe, Asia, and within the US can be expected.

Minimum MS in Optical Engineering, or Physics with an emphasis on physical optics modeling and computation. A 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 physical optics modeling will be considered.

Candidate must:

o 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.
o In depth experience with atleast 2 of the 3 items list: CodeV and/or Zemax; FRED and/or ASAP; MATLAB.
o Experience with Lumerical FDTD solution or equivalent is a plus to compute diffracted near field.
o Have strong written and oral communicative skills and a commitment to achieving results on time;
o Demonstrated “team player” with a quality orientation and interpersonal skills;
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 analytically technical issues.

The Optical Design and Development Group in Wilton CT is seeking an optical engineer with clear strength in the area of physical optics modeling and simulation. The Optical Design and Development is a mono-discipline group involved in optical design, physical optics modeling and optical metrology to support the design and build of high end optical sensors used on ASML Lithography tools for wafer alignment, wafer leveling, feedback metrology for process control, etc.
