Job Description: 

ASML is seeking a qualified candidate for a Co-op position (6 to 9 months) in  Optical Engineer.   Expertise in the area of Physical Optics Modeling and/or  experimental optics and metrology  are required.

The main focus of this position will be to support engineering staff:

  • Develop clear understanding of the physical operation of high end optical sensors and model basic effects and sensitivities;
  • Using combination of standard tools (CodeV, Zemax, FRED) and modeling in a MATLAB environment to generate accurate physical optics models to predict high end sensors performance and establish error budgets contributions;
  • Use developed models to support proto build validation and production build factory and field issues resolution.
  • As needed perform experiments and testing to validate predicted metrology sensor responses and predictions.


Candidate should be working toward a master or a Ph.D.  Student with high potential in optical design and engineering working toward a BS will be considered.


Some of the desired skills that the candidates should exhibit:

  • 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.
  • 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.
