Paper Abstract

A method for repairing transparent defects in photomasks has been developed. We discuss the experimental development and integration of the process into a commercial repair system. The defect repair process makes use of a laser to initiate thermal decomposition of a mod-ified commercially available gold metallorganic ink. The ink is locally decomposed with a laser over the defect thereby forming an adherent opaque gold repair pad over the defect. Rectangular repair pads from lum to 25um on a side can be deposited with a single laser exposure of 5 seconds.
