Paper Abstract

The authors present results of extensive studies on the chemical behavior of low molecular weight silicon-containing species (LMWS) and associated challenges of their analytical determination and control to prevent adverse influence on critical optical elements of exposure tools. In their paper the authors describe a non-traditional approach to the creation of a TMS gaseous source for filter media development and an engineering solution to the challenge of controlling LMWS - a solution that shows a significant advantage over currently existing approaches.
