Paper Abstract

In many respects, excimer lasers are almost ideal light sources for optical lithography applications. Their narrow bandwidth and high power provide tow of the main characteristics required of a light source for high- resolution imaging. However, for deep-UV lithography projection tools with no chromatic aberration in the imaging lens, even the very narrow bandwidth of an excimer laser may lead to image degradation.
