Abstract

Scanning illumination systems provide for a powerful and flexible means for controlling illumination coherence properties. Here we present a scanning Fourier synthesis illuminator that enables microfield extreme ultraviolet lithography to be performed on an intrinsically coherent synchrotron undulator beamline. The effectiveness of the system is demonstrated through a variety of print experiments, including the use of resolution enhancing coherence functions that enable the printing of 50-nm line-space features by use of a lithographic optic with a numerical aperture of 0.1 and an operational wavelength of 13.4 nm.
