Abstract

We report the demonstration of a reflection microscope that operates at 13.2nm wavelength with a spatial resolution of 55±3nm. The microscope uses illumination from a tabletop extreme ultraviolet laser to acquire aerial images of photolithography masks with a 20s exposure time. The modulation transfer function of the optical system was characterized.
