Significant advances have been made in recent years in the development of lithography optics. The resolution of
structures smaller than 45 nm demanded a new class of catadioptric objective lenses whose design and construction is the
result of decades of development in lithography optics. This article describes the best-performing lens types and design
principles of the catadioptric concept of these lenses.
