Paper Abstract

An angularly multiplexed XeCl excimer laser system, generating pulses of 4 - 5 ns duration, has been used to investigate soft x ray generation from laser-produced plasmas. For applications in x-ray lithography, the spectral regions of 10 - 15 angstrom and around 135 angstrom have been studied. A laser to x ray conversion efficiency of 5.5% and an x ray power of > 1 W into 2 (pi) steradians have been demonstrated in the shorter wavelength band. At the longer wavelength, the effects of laser intensity and plasma recombination on conversion efficiency have been studied.
