Intel LTD RET Software/Research Engineer in Richmond, Virginia

Job Description

Intel is in the middle of an exciting transformation, with a vision to create and extend computing technology to connect and enrich the lives of every person on Earth. Join LTD and help create the next generation of technologies that will touch the lives of people the world over for decades to come.

The LTD Resolution Enhancement Technology (RET) team is extending the limits of feature sizes that are patternable on Intel's devices, using current and future lithography manufacturing tooling. The team works closely with fab integrated lithography process and mask manufacturing teams using computational lithography tooling to optimize mask patterns and maximize manufacturing process window. The RET team also works closely with the design rule definition teams, using lithography and patterning simulation capabilities to determine design rules for future Intel process nodes.


  • Research, development, and implementation of Resolution Enhancement Techniques (RET) for existing and novel process technologies.

  • Defines and selects new approaches and implementation of RET.

  • Maintains substantial knowledge of the state-of-the-art principles and theories in lithography, optics, photoresists, computer modeling, and software engineering.

  • Must be able to interact with semiconductor design teams as well as fab patterning teams.

  • Use predictive modeling, statistics, machine learning, and other data analysis techniques to collect, explore, visualize fab process data, and develop RET software algorithms and applications to compensate for physical effects in photolithography imaging and the etch pattern transfer process.

  • Responsibilities include creation and usage of Optical Proximity Correction (OPC) simulations.

  • OPC model calibration OR OPC recipe optimization and code validation

  • Development of novel OPC model or correction capabilities.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • Degree in Engineering, Physical Science, Computer Science, or related fields.

  • 3+ years of experience in the semiconductor industry with emphasis on computational lithography, resolution enhancement technology, and or mask optimization capability

  • 3+ years of experience in application of RET concepts to solve integrated process problems.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with the latest techniques for developing and optimizing OPC solutions to support both high volume and newly developing technology nodes.
