Abstract
Scniiconductor industry currently faces double-hold pains. One is the record-breaking semiconductor depression brought by the IT bubble collapse in the United States, and another is a brick wall called "Lithography Crisis" which stands in front of the technological progress. The former is that no growth of semiconductor market can be anticipated except household electric appliances because of the surplus of the optical communication infrastructure in the United States and sales reduction ofpersonai computer and cellular phone. The latter is that no cost effective solution can be found for next generation lithography, which has been searched for in a long time. Even in the semiconductor market of household electricity appliance, small or middle quantity production in multiple kinds is required to be extremely low cost. it is the new lithography called "LEEPL" (Low Energy Electron Beam Proximity Projection Lithography) that challenges to solve these cost issues. Thanks for simple tool configuration and small niask pattern area, LEEPL promises both tool and mask to be low cost.
