Now that 1000 Hz KrF excimer laser based DUV lithography tools are firmly established in production, emphasis is shifting from development towards improving the productivity and profitability of the manufacturing process, thereby reducing the cost per wafer. In this arena, laser manufacturers are competing now not only on performance but also on cost and productivity enhancements that the laser can offer to the lithography process.
