We move the atoms that move the world.
At Lam Research, we’re all Atom Engineers. Engineers and specialists, leaders, new college grads and interns—we all help customers manipulate the tiny building blocks of atoms … and move the world.
Our equipment 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 eve...ry leading-edge chip inside the electronics you use every day (TVs, smartphones, laptops, cars) was made using our innovations.
Our footprint includes 16 countries and nearly 50 locations worldwide. This global presence serves customers who are designing increasingly smaller and more powerful chips. Our portfolio of market-leading products for thin film deposition, plasma etch, photoresist strip, and wafer cleaning is one of the vital links between their vision and reality.
