ASML

Company profile

ASML is changing the world, one nanometer at a time! We’re a high-tech, Netherlands-based company manufacturing complex lithography systems that chipmakers use to produce integrated circuits – aka microchips.

A global industry leader

Our machines help create the electronics you use in your daily life. In the past three decades, we have grown from a startup to a multinational company with over 60 locations globally and annual net sales of €18.6 billion in 2021. Our customers include the world’s leading chipmakers like Intel, Samsung and TSMC. We provide them with everything they need – hardware, software and services – to mass-produce patterns on silicon through lithography.

Investing in our people

Behind ASML’s innovation hides true talent. Our researchers, engineers, scientists and manufacturing specialists, as well as our high-tech hardware and software experts, make the impossible happen every day. We invest around €2.5 billion per year in R&D, giving our teams the freedom, support and resources to experiment and push the boundaries of technology. They work in close-knit, multidisciplinary teams, learning and growing along with the company.

Innovation to the max

Working at the forefront of technology offers unique challenges, driving our expert teams to innovate across multiple fields and disciplines. Over 20 years of sustained R&D brought us the development of extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. As the only supplier of this advanced technology, we’re responsible for continuing to develop and perfect these complex systems. One example of this complexity is how EUV light is generated. First, a 30-kilowatt laser fires at tin droplets 50,000 times per second, hitting each droplet twice. The laser vaporizes the tin droplets, creating a plasma hotter than the surface of the sun. This interaction emits EUV light at a wavelength of 13.5 nanometers. And all of this takes place in a vacuum-sealed system. From patterning nanometer-sized structures on a microchip wafer to creating light using lasers and liquid metal, the work we do can be hard to wrap your head around. Yet, every day around the world, ASML teams are solving these seemingly impossible problems and pushing technology to new limits.
