    EUV Technology for the semiconductor industry


    The Chip industry is still pursuing Moore’s law to build devices with smaller transistors and less power consumption to provide integrated circuits for a quickly growing landscape of applications. The lenses needed to provide the resolution and aberration levels required by the Chip industry have by far (2-3 orders of magnitude) surpassed the perfection levels of even the best camera lenses.After a brief introduction of the Company Carl Zeiss, the presenter will give an introductory overview of logic and memory device roadmaps. As Optical Micro Lithography is and will remain an important technology in chip manufacturing, the main portion of the presentation will focus the technological challenges and solutions of the new EUV Technology (using 13.5nm exposure wavelength) which will be a key technology for chipmakers in the upcoming years.
