A feasibility study of ArF excimer laser as a light source for subquarter micron design rule lithography is presented. Partially narrowed KLES-G1A ArF laser produces 57-pm (FWHM) bandwidth pulses with an average power of 5.1 W. Narrow-band operated KLES-G1A generated 7.2- pm (FWHM) pulses with 1.4 W. Further high output power with narrow-band spectrum was achieved by using injection-locking technique. The injection-locked ArF laser system generated 0.8-pm (FWHM) bandwidth pulses with an average power of 250 W. We also point out some problems appeared in the laser operation.
