Seminar Tomorrows Electronics
Electronics & Automation – dinsdagochtend 2 juni 2015, Marijkezaal
The Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography, ARCNL, started on 1 January 2014. ARCNL is a new, public-private funded research center founded on the initiative of ASML. The partners, ASML, FOM, NWO, University of Amsterdam, and VU, signed an agreement. Professor dr. Joost Frenken has been appointed as the first director of the ARCNL.
The new research center will conduct fundamental research relating to nanolithography, the most important technology for manufacturing computer chips and processors in PCs, smartphones, and tablets. Initially, the center will focus on the physical and chemical processes which are crucial for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. ARCNL will strengthen the knowledge base of nanolithography and thus make an important contribution to this technology, indispensable for innovation in the global semiconductor industry in the coming years.
