10 May 2018 Industrialization of a robust EUV source for high-volume manufacturing and power scaling beyond 250W
Author Affiliations +
In this paper, we provide an overview of various technologies for scaling tin laser-produced-plasma (LPP) extremeultraviolet (EUV) source performance to enable high volume manufacturing (HVM). We will show improvements to source architecture that facilitated the increase of EUV power from 100W to 250W, and the technical challenges for power scaling of key source parameters and subsystems. The performance of critical subsystems such as the Droplet Generator and Collector protection will be shown, with emphasis on stability and lifetime. Finally, we will describe current research activities and provide a perspective for LPP EUV sources towards 500W.
