Title: Chips industry, ASML and Photonics & Optics


The chips industry is going through large changes, driven by the further pace of Moore’s law and the new applications that are enabled by this. ASML plays a key role in this process, by enabling each new generation of chips. In this presentation, we will highlight the evolution of the semiconductor landscape, the role ASML plays, and how light and optics stand at the basis of these developments.
