18 March 2016 100W EUV light-source key component technology update for HVM
Author Affiliations +
Gigaphoton Inc. develops a high-power laser produced plasma extreme ultraviolet (LPP EUV) light source for high volume manufacturing which enables sub-10nm critical layer patterning for semiconductor device fabrication. A technology update of key components of a 100 W LPP-EUV light source is given in this paper. The key components efficiently produce a stable plasma and evacuate the tin debris from the EUV vessel with a magnetic debris mitigation system. The chosen technology guarantees therefore a high-power and long-life EUV light source system. Each component is described with updated data. The latest system performance results are also presented. They were obtained from our proto LPP-EUV light systems which support 100 W output power.
