Degree Master Experience No experience (Student) Team Job Category Physics Chemistry & materials science Reference req13973


Are you a Physics or a Material Science student who likes the detective work of finding and eliminating the sources of in particle contamination?

Then this is an exciting assignment for you.

Job Mission

One of the products ASML develops is the EUV Pellicle. This pellicle is used in the ASML scanners to protect the reticle mask from particles in the scanner, since defects on the mask can cause dysfunctional microchips for ASML’s customers.

It is of outmost importance that the pellicle is produced cleanly, and that the product itself does not contribute to new reticle defects.

Being able to measure small (250 nm and up) particles from different sources on different surfaces, fast, accurate and reliable is getting more and more important.

Therefore the Pellicle program is working on implementing new metrology methods for defect inspections, and use these methods for identifying root causes of defect generation.

The complexity of the data obtained makes data organization along this process very important.

Job Description

Your assignment will be part of the improvement plan for the pellicle defectivity performance, in which you will be responsible for obtaining a material composition pareto with Scanning Electron Microscopy, for defects found on assembled pellicles.

This will give guidance in determining the root cause of these defects to improve the defectivity level of the pellicle.

The assignment includes the planning, coordination, execution and analysis of Scanning Electron Microscopy measurements, and organization of its results to enable optimal root cause finding.

This includes the design of a reporting method on the outcomes to different stakeholders.


You are a Bachelor or Master’s student in Physics or Material Science. You have a hands-on mentality, are proactive, have an interest in programing to enable fast data processing, are capable of working accurately and maintaining overviews in a dynamic environment.

This is an apprentice or graduation internship for 4 to 5 days a week with duration of a minimum 4 months. The start date is to be discussed.

Please keep in mind that we can only consider students (who are enrolled at a school during the whole internship period) for our internships and graduation assignments.

What ASML offers

Your internship will be in one of the leading Dutch corporations, gaining valuable experience in a highly dynamic environment.

You will receive a monthly internship allowance of 500 euro (maximum), plus a possible housing or travel allowance. In addition, you’ll get expert, practical guidance and the chance to work in and experience a dynamic, innovative team environment.

ASML : Be part of progress

We make machines that make chips the hearts of the devices that keep us informed, entertained and safe; that improve our quality of life and help to tackle the world’s toughest problems.

We build some of the most amazing machines that you will ever see, and the software to run them. Never satisfied, we measure our performance in units that begin with pico or nano.

We believe we can always do better. We believe the winning idea can come from anyone. We love what we do not because it’s easy, but because it’s hard.

Students : Getting ready for real-world R&D

Pushing technology further is teamwork, and our R&D team is more than 5,500 people strong, with major sites on three continents.

Dozens of diverse, interdisciplinary teams work in parallel to meet a challenging development schedule.

In such an environment, your colleagues may be sitting next door, or they could be thousands of kilometers away in a different country, or even working for a different company.

An internship at ASML is your opportunity to get to know this world of industrial-strength R&D and get a feel for that excites you most.

Will you design a part of the machine, or make sure it gets built to the tightest possible specifications? Will you write software that drives the system to its best performance, or work side-by-side with the engineers of our customers in a fab, optimizing a system to the requirements of the customer?

How will you be part of progress?
