Laser plasma light source using double pulses laser irradiation and through-hole method is proposed as a mass-limited target srouce for extreme UV (EUV) radiation. After minimum necessary material is supplied using the ablation laser from a solid target, only ablated material is irradiated with the heating laser to produce a high-temperature plasma, and EUV radiation is extracted passing through the hole formed in the solid target. Fundamental concept of this scheme, EUV radiation and great reduction of particle debris were experimentally confirmed.
