Paper Abstract

The principles of operation of the solid immersion lens (SIL) are described. Two types of SIL, the hemisphere and super-sphere, and their tolerances, are discussed. Several application of the SIL to microscopy, lithography, and optical storage are reviewed, along with a description of the theoretical considerations for determining the spot size, the effect of the air gap, and the effect of multiple- layer structures on the ellipticity of the spot.
