Mission: Lam Research is dedicated to the success of our customers by being the world-class provider of innovative technology and productivity solutions to the semiconductor industry.
Today’s blog is all about silicon! Dive into the variety of use cases for this single element.
Smart cars are driving demand for a new generation of 200 mm tools. Check out what this means for the future of wafer fabs on today’s blog:
At Lam Research, we create equipment that allows chipmakers to build device features more than 1,000 times smaller than a grain of sand. This tiny scale has a huge impact. Virtually every leading-edge chip inside the electronic products you use every day (TVs, smartphones, laptops, cars –even medical devices) has been made using our equipment.
Creating today’s chips requires the utmost precision on a scale so small, it’s hard to comprehend. Yet that’s where we shine – and our real strength is our team. At Lam, we consider ourselves Atom Engineers. Whether you’re in operations, supply chain management, or customer support; whether you’re an engineer, a technician, or a specialist; whether you’re a senior leader or recent grad, you’re part of Lam Research. And that means you’re helping our customers manipulate the building blocks of atoms …and move the world.

As electronics get smaller, technology challenges get bigger. Our role in solving them—and facilitating modern life—is to create the sophisticated wafer fabrication equipment and services that make complex computer chips possible.
Producing the tiny, complex chips used in these devices involves the repetition of a set of core processes and includes hundreds of individual steps. To do this successfully, semiconductor manufacturers require sophisticated processes and fabrication equipment. By offering critical chip-processing capabilities, the products you’ll help engineer here will help turn visionary designs into realities.
Market demand for continuously shrinking chip dimensions is driving the development of and migration to new fabrication strategies that enable producing these advanced devices with fine, closely packed features. Creating the cutting-edge microprocessors and memory devices for today’s products is extremely challenging and requires precision control at the atomic scale. Through collaboration and drawing on multiple areas of expertise, our engineers continue to develop the new capabilities required to manufacture increasingly complex devices with shrinking dimensions.
Lam Research offers a broad portfolio of market-leading products for thin film deposition, plasma etch, photoresist strip, and wafer cleaning –complementary processing steps that are repeated multiple times throughout the semiconductor manufacturing process flow.

I have been working at Lam Research full-time
Lam offered me my first job in the US and a 14+ year career that has been challenging and extremely rewarding. As a female engineer and a foreigner, I feel privileged to be part of a company that has supported my professional growth, appreciated my contribution and fulfilled me beyond my expectations.
This is a company made of people truly passionate and skilled, a company with a world class executive team, that matches the quality and integrity of every other level. There is no other way to perform and grow the way Lam Research has done so, if not for the extraordinary vision of the leadership team and the skilled and motivated workforce. There is no way to deliver, year after year, unprecedented results if there wasn't an environment of respect, trust, and teamwork.
It has been an honor to be part of the company under the leadership that raised the bar during the past years, that inspired us to execute what seemed impossible, that made us believe in our collective power and that changed the lives of thousands of people through stock performance and profit sharing.
I look forward to many more years at Lam, to the opportunities ahead and the fortune to work with and for, remarkable people.
Opportunity means hard work, high level or performance means hard work.. if you understand that, you will thrive at Lam
Advice to Management
Keep Aiming High
I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lam Research (Bengaluru (India)) in March 2017.
First round of the recruiting process being the online test, included technical and aptitude questions. This was conducted in the college campus. Results of the same were intimated a week later. For further rounds, we were called to Bangalore Office, where one Technical Round was taken. For the one who were shortlisted after this, HR interview was taken. Results of the same were made known after one week. I am glad to be one among them.
