The Optics Scientist will contribute to the development of new laser-based semiconductor wafer dicing processes

Job description

ASM Laser Separation International is looking for an experienced Optics Scientist that can contribute to the development of new laser-based semiconductor wafer dicing processes. An important aspect of the overall dicing process is the optimal UV optics system that delivers the laser beam on to the wafer. In general the optical system requires constant optimization and improvements, especially when dealing with high power UV beams.

The Optics Scientist contributes to new ideas, concepts and developments and is responsible for planning and conducting of experiments as well as the evaluation and interpretation of the results. He/she communicates with development partners and selected customers about ongoing activities and achieved improvements. Furthermore, the Optics Scientist is responsible for deploying these optics improvements in to the machines in the field and will act as expert third-line backup for field issues. The Optics Scientist is functionally reporting to ASM ALSI’s R&D Manager and is working in a team with specialists in different fields.

Desired Skills and Experience

  • PhD (or comparable) degree in optical engineering or physics
  • At least 3-5 years of job experience
  • Experience with optics designs and lasers
  • Knowledge about high-power laser handling and/or UV optics is a clear advantage.
  • Knowledge about laser processing is an advantage
  • Experience in the front- and backend processing in the semiconductor industry would be an advantage.
  • Pragmatic and hands-on mentality
  • Capable of aligning & troubleshooting complex optical systems
  • Systematic approach to problem solving
  • Analytical and creative thinking
  • Good team player, good communication skills and customer oriented
