Rigaku Innovative Technologies Presents Latest Innovations at 2017 SPIE Photomask Technology Conference

September 12, 2017, Monterey, CA. — Rigaku Innovative Technologies (RIT), a leading global supplier of multilayer optics for EUV lithography (EUVL), is pleased to announce its attendance at the SPIE Photomask Technology + Extreme Ultraviolet Lithography 2017 meeting in Monterey, California.

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics. The event takes place at the Monterey Marriott, Monday through Thursday September 11 – 14, 2017. RIT will be presenting its high-reflectivity and precision coatings for collector, illumination, imaging and analysis optics for EUV lithography at booth 117.

RIT is the components division of Rigaku Corporation, and is a global supplier of high-performance multilayer optics used in commercial and academic institutions and government research facilities. RIT manufactures the most widely used brand of multilayers and X-ray source systems in the world for hard and soft X-ray analysis of liquid, powder or solid samples.

Among the papers presented at the event will be “High-precision MoSi multilayer coatings for radial and 2D symmetric designs on curved optics” (10450-76, Session P6Tue) by Michael D. Kriese, Yang Li, and Yuri Y. Platonov of RIT. The paper details recent results in the production of a variety of high-precision multilayer coatings achieved to support the development of industrial infrastructure for EUV lithography.
