The characteristic dimensions of features forming the transistors and the interconnecting wires of modern ICs (e.g., a diameter of an interconnect wire or a minimal spacing between such wires) are in low tens of nanometers, or even smaller. To enable each successive technology node, the industry requires sub-atomic model accuracy and computational efficient algorithms to prepare the mask data in order to foster optimal yield in the semiconductor fab.

You will have the opportunity to work inside the product development team to design, develop, modify, and implement software programming for our Calibre RET products. You will be paired with a mentor to work on projects such as EUV lithography models, curvilinear mask solutions, Source-Mask Optimization or Optical Proximity Correction.
