Paper Abstract

Development of a drive laser with sufficient output power, high beam quality, and economical cost of consumables is critical to the successful implementation of a laser-produced plasma (LPP) EUV source for HVM applications. Cymer has conducted research on a number of solutions to this critical need. We report our progress on development of a high power system using two gas-discharge power amplifiers and repetition rates exceeding 10 kHz to produce more than 2kW output power with high beam quality. We provide optical performance data and design features of the drive laser as well as a path to output power scaling to meet high volume manufacturing requirements
