Paper Abstract

A new algorithm for designing an illuminator in a proximity exposure system is discussed. A relation between aberration of an irradiating lens and the irradiance distribution is studied and it is found that the lens has to satisfy the expression:h =f tan 0 to achieve uniform distribution. We designed a new-type illuminator with irradiating lens based on this expression and used a Fresnel lens as a collimator. This illuminator has high uniformity in the distribution within over an exposure area of 650mm x 650 mm. It has a collimation angle which is desirable fOr high resolution; and, experimentally, a resolution of 5 p.m line and space pattern was observed with a gap of 50 p.m.
