About ASML Metrology

Metrology orchestrates the behavior of powerful mechatronic modules, so that together they achieve an extraordinary combination of speed and accuracy. It is the brain of ASML lithography systems. We have organized our metrology resources into several clusters and each of these clusters consists of two groups: functional and software.
