Abstract
Excimer laser micromachining applications have gained more and more interest in fabrication of commercial microstructure products (e.g. multi chip modules, printed circuit boards, excimer laser stripped wires and others). The unique properties of the pulsed excimer laser radiation are the deep UV wavelength and the high peak power which result in the special material interaction for high precision micromachining. The key elements in taking full advantage of the excimer laser beam and in providing reproducible and controlled micromachining is the illumination and imaging optics. Detailed investigations were performed to understand microstructure formation (e.g. wall angle and microstructure position accuracy) in regard to illumination and imaging optics parameters. Qualitative and quantitative relations were found to explain microstructure feature performance in regard to optical and processing parameters.
