What we do

Shaping and driving the era of microelectronics: The ZEISS Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology business group enables the success of microchip manufacturers around the globe. With our diverse product portfolio, we cover a wide range of key processes in microchip manufacturing, including optical lithography, process control and mask optimization. 

Our technologies continuously advance the miniaturization of the structures on microchips. Thus, we enable the chip manufacturers to produce microchips that are ever smaller, faster and more energy-efficient per functional unit. For example, we have taken the first step into the future microchip production with EUV lithography.

Research and development play a primary role for ZEISS: About 30 per cent of Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology employees work in the area of research and development. Our plant in Oberkochen is unique worldwide with regard to research opportunities in semiconductor technology. Furthermore, the ZEISS Semiconductor Manufacturing Technology business group offers all employees numerous specialized and individual options for advanced training and education.
