Our Mission and Vision

From the beginning of civilization, metals and alloys have been mankind`s most essential materials due to their excellent combination of strength and ductility and sustainability. One of the crucial problems in metals is a counterbalance between ductility and strength; high strength generally leads to poor ductility in metals. Thus ASML`s essential objective is to investigate the alloys with a remarkable balance between strength and ductility, using cutting-edge analyses of the relationship between microstructure and mechanical properties.
