Initial experience establishing a EUV baseline lithography process for manufacturability assessment

View publication


The International Venture for Nanolithography (INVENT) initiative announced in mid 2005, a unique industry-university consortium between the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering at Albany and a group of leading edge integrated device manufacturers, has launched an extensive R&D program on EUV lithography (EUVL). The overall scope of the INVENT EUVL program, the status of our efforts to establish a baseline lithography process on a full-field EUVL scanner, and our progress in evaluating EUV resist materials, in designing a custom reticle for scanner characterization and in developing an actinic EUV mask imaging microscope, are discussed.
