Abstract
Bubbles and droplets may be detrimental to the successful implementation of immersion lithography, depending in part on their lifetime in the system. In this work, a model is developed to estimate the dissolution times of nitrogen bubbles in pure water that may be free-floating or adhered to a solid surface. The model is then extended to small free and adhered droplets. Bubble dissolution and droplet evaporation times for typical immersion lithography conditions are presented.
