The development of a laboratory EUV lithography tool based on a laser plasma source, a 10x Schwarzschild camera, and a magnetically levitated wafer stage is presented. Interferometric measurements of the camera aberrations are incorporated into physical-optics simulations to estimate the EUV imaging performance of the camera. Experimental results demonstrate the successful matching of five multilayer reflecting surfaces, coated to specification for a wide range of figure and incidence angle requirements. High-resolution, 10x-reduction images of a reflection mask are shown.© (1994) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
