ASML researchers in running for prestigious inventor award

Two researchers at the Veldhoven chip manufacturer, ASML, are in the running for a prestigious European inventor award.

This concerns engineers Erik Loopstra and Vadim Banine, reports the financial newspaper, the FD (Financieele Dagblad). They are the pioneers of the EUV machine, which can manufacture chips that will make computers much faster. The machines cost at least EUR 100 million each.

They have now been nominated for the annual European Patent Office’s Inventor Award, because of their ground-breaking work on the new generation chip-manufacturing machines. The two have patented the machine. They have been involved in the EUV project since 1998.

ASML is a world leader when it comes to chip-manufacturing machines. The new EUV technology gives the group from Veldhoven a competitive advantage.
