KLA Careers

Senior Optical Systems Engineer - eBeam

Company Overview

Calling the adventurers ready to join a company that's pushing the limits of nanotechnology to keep the digital revolution rolling. At KLA, we're making technology advancements that are bigger—and tinier—than the world has ever seen.

Who are we?  We research, develop, and manufacture the world's most advanced inspection and measurement equipment for the semiconductor and nanoelectronics industries. We enable the digital age by pushing the boundaries of technology, creating tools capable of finding defects smaller than a wavelength of visible light. We create smarter processes so that technology leaders can manufacture high-performance chips—the kind in that phone in your pocket, the tablet on your desk and nearly every electronic device you own—faster and better. We're passionate about creating solutions that drive progress and help people do what wouldn't be possible without us.  The future is calling. Will you answer?

Group/Division

With over 40 years of semiconductor process control experience, chipmakers around the globe rely on KLA to ensure that their fabs ramp next-generation devices to volume production quickly and cost-effectively. Enabling the movement towards advanced chip design, KLA's Global Products Group (GPG), which is responsible for creating all of KLA’s metrology and inspection products, is looking for the best and the brightest research scientist, software engineers, application development engineers, and senior product technology process engineers.

First to deliver the best imaging and classification data for every defect or point on any layer at any time.

EBeam’s mission encapsulates its role as the “eyes” of KLA’s product line, providing timely information on defects and critical locations on the wafer at the highest spatial resolution possible.  Customers use EBeam products alongside KLA patterned and bare wafer inspectors to quickly understand the nature of defects and other imperfections on product wafers and take action to correct the manufacturing process.

Responsibilities

The Engineer will serve as a key design engineer in the area of systems engineering and light optics to support our tool roadmap in the ebeam division.

He/She will help define system/module specifications, allocate requirements to the subsystems, calculate error budgets and define and resolve interfaces leading to optimized system/module performance.

She/he will apply theories and techniques of Applied Physics to design experiments for particle systems and/or photon optics subsystems and retire critical risks of those systems. Specifically, the engineer will plan, lead experiments and conduct trade-off studies required to create complex subsystems as well as write the specifications, drive the implementation, and take ownership of their performance.

This will include writing test plans, developing the specifications for modules and subsystems, and leading the data analysis.

As a KLA systems/optics engineer he/she will critically analyze KLA’s current E-beam semiconductor systems to identify focus areas for technical improvement and/or simulate optical elements and subsystem raytracing as well as analyze the simulation results and present findings.

Finally, she/he will be instrumental in troubleshooting these systems as they are developed and establish the metrology, automatic calibrations and diagnostics needed to efficiently utilize these highly complex tools
