Data Analyst Metrology

Help us develop new AFM metrology applications for the semiconductor industry!

Full-time · Rotterdam

What will you be doing?

The leading techniques in Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) have enabled the investigation of surfaces and adsorbates on surfaces with atomic precision for a wide range of materials. AFM measures the interaction force between the tip and the substrate.

AFM images contain significant information not only from the layer being measured, but convoluted with artifacts and noise introduced by the tool, probe, measurement method and so on. In this position, you will apply your strong data analytics skills with knowledge of the layer being measured and/or AFM knowledge to understand the contributions from tool. You will use this developed knowledge/data to aid development engineers in improving our methods and application engineers in better setting up recipes for measurements.

In this role you will be part of our Metrology Applications team. This team is responsible for:

• Develop new AFM metrology applications for the semiconductor industry by

o Interactions with customers to understand their metrology needs.

o Determine how we can use our product to meet these needs.

o Developing new AFM measurement modes and data processing algorithms if necessary.

• Demonstrating our state-of-the-art metrology system capabilities by measuring the most challenging layers on customer wafers.

• Supporting our customer with the integration of our products in the customer’s manufacturing line.

Why is this interesting for you?

As an enthusiastic and result driven Data Analyst, you

• would like to work with AFM data obtained from measurements on application layers.

• are curious to link data to actionable insights, aiming at new product offerings or improve the capabilities, performance and efficiency of existing products.
