Paper Abstract

We report the performance of a very high repetition rate ArF laser optimized for next generation, high NA, high throughput scanner. The laser's repetition rate exceeds 4kHz, at 5mJ, and at bandwidths of less than 1.2 pm. We discuss the complexity of high power operation, and make some estimates about the robustness of this technology. In particular, we discuss the risks of scaling to this high repetition rate, and prospects of exceeding 4kHz to near 6kHz with 95 percent bandwidths of less than 1pm.
