6 December 2001 Compact high-power laser-plasma x-ray source for lithography
Author Affiliations +
A compact laser produced plasma x-ray source radiates 24 Watts average power of 1nm x-rays in 2(pi) steradians. The x-ray power conversion efficiency is 9% from the laser average power focused on the x-ray target. The laser-plasma x-ray source is generated by a 300W compact, diode-pumped, solid-state Nd:YAG laser system. The tabletop laser system is constructed on a 4ft x 8ft optical bench and the laser modules are 1ft high. The total wall-plug power consumption for this laser-produced-plasma x-ray source is 22 kW. The x-ray source is optimized for integration with and x-ray stepper to provide a complete x-ray lithography exposure tool for the manufacture of high speed GaAs devices.
