EUV lithography is one of the approaches to manufacture half-pitch 1x nm devices. It is required high CD mean control, high CD uniformity, and low defect density for EUV mask in common with DUV mask. In addition, backside defect density is drastically tightened to avoid overlay error in EUV scanner. PGSD (Proximity-Gap-Suction-Development), a novel development system we developed, has kept upgrading to satisfy the demand of most-advanced devices, and 3rd-generation PGSD (PGSD Gen. III) which developed for EUV mask will be contributed to achieve required accuracy of EUV mask. In this paper, we propose the concept of PGSD Gen. III and report its performance.
