The Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography (ARCNL) is a new research center, located at the
Amsterdam Science Park.
ARCNL is a public-private partnership between the Foundaton for Fundamental Research on Mater
(FOM), the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the VU University Amsterdam (VU) and the semiconductor
equipment manufacturer ASML. ARCNL focuses on the fundamental physics involved in current and
future key technologies in nanolithography, primarily for the semiconductor industry.
During a short, inital phase, ARCNL formally operates as a department of the FOM Insttute AMOLF. Afer
this launch, it will be an independent research center, stafed by approximately one hundred scientsts
and technical support staf. ARCNL is managed under the auspices of the Netherlands Organisaton for
ScientMc Research (NWO).
For its Mrst research groups, ARCNL now invites applicatons for the positons of
PhD students and postdocs in Nanolithography
in the following felds:
-Generaton of EUV light through laser-induced plasmas
-Structure, compositon and dynamics of EUV producing plasmas
-New targets for the generaton of EUV light
-Lensless imaging with EUV light
-Growth of nanolayers (e.g. graphene) and multlayers for EUV optcs
-Spectrocopy on EUV emitng plasmas using ultrafast lasers and high-harmonic generaton
-Nanophotochemistry for EUV photoresists
ARCNL is seeking candidates trained in experimental physics, chemistry, materials science or engineering
with an interest in cutng-edge research, combining fundamental and applied aspects. The selected
junior scientsts will become members of a new team of 100 ARCNL staf. They will beneMt from brand
new, state-of-the-art laboratory facilites and research equipment. Research will be carried out in strong
partnership with ASML, AMOLF and UvA/VU. Short internships at ASML may be part of each project. Afer
Mnishing their work at ARCNL, excellent candidates may have a subsequent job perspectve at ASML.
ARCNL employees will be under contract with either FOM, UvA or VU, under standard working conditons.
PhD positons are for 4 years, postdoc positons for 2 or 3 years.
The deadline for our Mrst round of applicatons is August 31, 2014.
Descriptons of speciMc research projects and job openings are posted on the ARCNL website:
