Paper Abstract

We describe the design and implementation of a vacuum compatible laser-based absolute distance measurement system with subnanometer resolution. The presented system is compatible with operation in the 10–8-Torr range, and with some minor modifications it could be used in the 10–9-Torr range. The system is based on glancing incidence reflection and dual segmented diode detection. The system has been implemented as a focus sensor for extreme ultraviolet interferometry and microlithography experiments at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Advanced Light Source synchrotron radiation facility. A 3σ operational noise floor of 0.78 nm has been demonstrated.
