28 December 2017: MaxEUV High Efficiency Multilayer Optics for 13.5 nm, 6.x, and XUV

Rigaku Innovative Technologies, Inc.

Optimized multilayer design for the highest possible performance for your specific optical design. High peak reflectivity, uniformity, 1D & 2D d-spacing profile precision ± 0.005 nm rms. Large production capability with load-locked deposition chambers, handling linear sizes up to 1.5m x 0.5m and diameters up to 750mm.

Illumination systems for EUV call for demanding requirements to the mirror substrates and theircoating. The main technical challenges are:
•Highly curved, off-axis optical surfaces
•Low high-spatial frequency roughness to
maximize coating reflectivity
•Highly graded multilayer d-spacing distribution
•Dissimilar multilayer gradients in tangential and
sagittal directions
These substrate and multilayer characteristics, together with the optical design of the illumination system, ensure the desired flux distribution in the sample plane or in the intermediate focus of an optical system. RIT has the capabilities to overcome these technical challenges and provide the best quality and efficiency in EUV Illumination and Collector Optics.

30 November 2017: Selected Components for RTP Chambers

amcoss GmbH

amcoss offers repair service for exclusive parts for RTP process chambers: Reflector Plates, RTP Races, Lamp Heads, Temp Match Tool Calibration, Pyrometer Calibration, and Light Pipes for RTP Pyrometers.
End users are regularly confronted with corrosion of coatings or with wear of components used in the RTP chamber. Light reflectivity drops. Operational liability of the parts is no longer guaranteed.
Often, our customers have to face the challenge that OEMs´ will only offer cost-intensive original parts and that there are no options to repair complex RTP components appropriately. This is different with amcoss: we offer high-end repair service.
At first all parts are being inspected and measured. Coatings will be removed by using special techniques. The de-coated surface will then be worked on mechanically and finally polished. Afterwards a new coating will be applied. Every step is of course be monitored.
In the end you will receive a reworked component which as far as performance is concerned will be as good as a new one. The RTP process itself is not be affected by using refurbished components. Quality and price are remarkable.

30 November 2017: Digital Gradient Filter for ASML Steppers

amcoss GmbH

amcoss creates digital gradient filters which show dramatic improvements of uniformity. Compared to standard analog filters, the use of digital ones results in better uniformity, as the filter is tailored to the intensity profile of the wafer stepper (ASML).
Illumination intensity and uniformity drop in every stepper due to a degradation of the machine´s optics. amcoss provides special gradient filters that are used to compensate this shift.
Digital gradient filters are tailored to the intensity profile of the stepper. The design starts with this current profile. The stepper measures the light intensity in a matrix of points and creates a data file. So as to take this data all existing gradient filters are removed, because otherwise the profile would be distorted.
The challenge then is to create from this data an individual filter that will compensate for non-uniformity at a minimum loss of light wafer illumination. amcoss is one of the very few companies that have the knowledge to design and fabricate such filters.
amcoss already engineered and supplied a multitude of digital gradient filters for (ASML) wafer steppers. All tests and measurements in the field proved, that our filters provide significant better uniformity and light intensity.

30 November 2017: 3rd Condenser Lenses

amcoss GmbH

Refurbishment of degraded 3rd Condenser Lenses is one of our company´s absolute areas of expertise. Dozens of successfully refurbished lenses within shortest processing time speak in our favour.
Non-uniform intensity distribution in the Canon FPA3000 optics is mainly due to degradation of the coatings of the 3rd Condenser Lenses.
First, we do a detailed inspection of the complete lens, then we disassemble it. We remove optical coatings, polish the surfaces and test. After cleaning, the surfaces are coated and tested again. We do the final assembly in our clean room, as well as ultimate extensive measurements.
In our in-house lab we are able to do high precision measurements of transmission, reflection, intensity and uniformity with professional measuring tools.
Data from the production equipment, taken under real conditions during the production process at our customers, additionally and reliably prove the quality of the amcoss-refurbishment. After repair the intensity & uniformity are equal to a new lens.
amcoss provides appreciable value-added to our customers: not only with the significant improvement of all important parameters, highest quality and dramatic cost reduction, but also with shortest possible throughput times of refurbishment.

9 October 2017: ECSz3030 – vertical piezo drive for 8 N and minimum mounting space

attocube systems Inc.

Nanopositioning of high loads, such as detectors or cameras can be a difficult task. In addition, many applications require large travel ranges, but have limited installation space available. attocube’s new ECSz3030 piezo drive has been especially developed to meet these demands: it offers an orientation independent force of 8 N over a travel range of 5 mm, and requires minimum installation space.
The ECSz3030 is the perfect choice for lateral motion setups, and can be easily combined with the whole range of rotators, goniometers and linear positioners of attocube’s Industrial Line portfolio.
