5 June 1998 Recent advances in the Sandia EUV 10x microstepper

The Sandia EUV 10x microstepper system is the result of an evolutionary development process, starting with a simple 20x system, progressing through an earlier 10x system, to the current system that has full microstepper capabilities. The 10x microstepper prints 400-micrometers -diameter fields at sub- 0.10-micrometers resolution. Upgrades include the replacement of the copper wire target with a pulsed xenon jet target, construction of an improved projection optics system, the addition of a dose monitor a d an aerial image monitor, and the addition of a graphical user interface to the system operation software. This paper provides an up-to-date report on the status of the microstepper.
