Paper Abstract

The effect of atmospheric pressure variations on the reduction ratio of a stepper lens is discussed. Data for a 5X lens is presented which demonstrates a dependence of the reduction ratio on the atmospheric pressure. The dependence can lead to a .3 um error in the reduction of an 11 mm field. A model based on thin lens optics is also presented which predicts the observed trends. Methods of minimizing the impact of this effect are discussed.
