Why Join Us

How We Do It

We inhabit two worlds: one that’s nanometers in scale and one that’s global. This micro and macro view gives us a unique perspective. We see electrons wave and industries transform. When you put deep science together with optimism, big things happen.


Last year we invested 11.8% of sales back into R&D. That’s a measure of our commitment to solving the most daunting technical challenges. From our ground-breaking mask inspection tool in 1975 that signaled the dawn of semiconductor process control, to today’s broadband plasma technology that discovers defects at the speed of light, we like to arrive first.


Active collaboration multiplies agile thinking. We put this approach into practice at strategic, technical and operational levels with our partners. Working side-by-side both geographically and intellectually, we maximize discovery and solutions.

We have a proven ability to go from concept to global marketplace. We invent in-house, make strategic acquisitions and share technology across systems to diversify our perspectives and widen the range of our solutions. Comprehensive service programs keep it all optimized.

Company Highlights



We support a range of community and charitable initiatives with funding and volunteer opportunities: STEM education, health and wellness programs, local aid and international disaster relief. We sponsor the Second Harvest Food Bank in Santa Clara County and fight river blindness in Africa. Not for profit, just for humanity.

Make the World a Better Place

We believe that technology has a meaningful and positive impact on the world. How technology can change our societies for the better? What greater good can be achieved by harnessing exceptional thinking to promote exponential technological innovation? Those are the questions that inspire us to evolve.
