Paper Abstract

We describe true continuous-wave (CW), high-power, line-narrowed, deep-ultraviolet (DUV) light sources for the high-resolution metrology tools such as wafer inspection and mask inspection systems. The 198.5-nm CW radiation with 300-mW power has also been achieved by sum-frequency mixing (SFM) of 1064-nm output from a single-frequency Yb3+ fiber amplifier with the 244-nm radiation from a frequency-doubled argon-ion laser. The 266-nm CW DUV radiation with 5 W of maximum power has been generated by frequency doubling of 532-nm green laser output. Both sources utilize Brewster-cut CsLiB6O10 (CLBO) crystal for efficient and stable DUV light generation.
