The Surfscan Division specializes in developing unpatterned wafer surface inspection tool that provides the sensitivity and throughput required for qualification of current and next-generation semiconductor wafer substrates, as well as qualification and monitoring of process tools. Incorporating UV laser technology, darkfield optics and advanced algorithms, the Surfscan wafer surface inspection tools finds defects down to 30nm in size, and enables consistent, high sensitivity detection on engineered substrates.
We are looking to grow the Systems Characterization team within the Systems Engineering group in the Surfscan division. In this position the candidate will have to develop a thorough understanding of Surfscan products with regards to calibrations, optics, mechanical systems, electronics, and software in order to contribute to new product development.
The goal of this position is to characterize tool performance and analyse the root causes of performance limitations down to the component level in order to make improvements. The investigations of possible limitations may require modelling of systems HW and simulation of SW algorithms not currently available on the tool. Proposed solutions can affect any aspect of the system and will require collaboration with the respective groups for prototyping and testing.
Sometime will spent supporting new use cases being developed jointly with customers. In these collaborations the function of this position would be to develop new calibration standards, to provide advanced data analysis and guide the applications development team.
This role requires a good combination of practical hands-on skills and system level thinking. Additionally, strong analytical skills are required to set up experiments and perform detailed data analysis.
The candidate will need to multitask, work independently, and be a motivated team member. Strong written and verbal communications skills are needed for the interaction with different teams.
- MS or Ph.D. in Physics, Engineering or related fields is required
- Strong data analysis skills including experience in writing scripts for customized analysis and modelling using MatLab or similar software
- A background in optics, opto-mechanical systems, mechanical design, digital image processing or semiconductor processing is preferred
Bachelor's Level Degree with at least 5 years of experience
Master's Level Degree with at least 4 years of experience
Doctorate (Academic) with at least 2 years of experience
