Paper Abstract

Tin-based laser-produced plasmas are attractive candidates as extreme ultraviolet light (EUV) sources for lithography. The accurate simulation of the dynamics and spectral properties of plasmas used in radiation source experiments plays a crucial role in analyzing and interpreting experimental measurements, and in optimizing the 13.5 nm radiation from the plasma source. We use HELIOS-CR, a 1-D radiation-magnetohydrodynamics code, along with a detailed and comprehensive atomic database for tin, to simulate the properties and EUV emission from a plasma produced by the interaction of 1.06 μm laser light and a tin-doped water droplet. Simulated spectra are shown to be in good agreement with experimental results at a variety of laser intensities. Simulation results are also presented to examine the ionization distribution for tin at the simulated temperatures and densities.
