    4. Feature Of The Week 08/31/2018: Spectroscopic Characterization of Si/Mo Thin-film Stack at Extreme Ultraviolet Range

      Feature Of The Week 08/31/2018: Spectroscopic Characterization of Si/Mo Thin-film Stack at Extreme Ultraviolet Range

      Using extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation for nanoscale imaging has recently seen much interest. As actinic patterned mask inspection tools are not available, chipmakers have to rely on wafer inspection to identify mask defects. To fulfill the requirements of mask inspection, EUV sources with high brightness, high stability (spatial and temporal), and cost effectiveness are needed. In a laser-produced-plasma (LPP) generated EUV system, a high-intensity laser beam is focused onto a tin target to form a hot plasma, which emits ultraviolet light. In this study, a fiber-laser excitation source was used to generate stable 13.5-nm EUV for spectroscopic optical coherence ...
