Abstract

Two basic types of interferometer, a point diffraction interferometer (PDI) and a lateral shearing interferometer (LSI) suitable for operation in the extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) wavelength region, are described. To address the challenges of wavefront measurement with an accuracy of 0.1  nm rms, we present a calibration method for the PDI that places a mask with two large windows at the image plane of the illumination point light source and a general approach to deriving the phase-shift algorithm series that eliminates the undesired zeroth-order effect in the LSI. These approaches to improving the measurement accuracy were experimentally verified by the wavefront measurements of a Schwarzschild-type EUV projection lens.
