Photolithography is a process used in microfabrication to transfer geometric patterns to a film or substrate. The importance of lithography can be appreciated in two ways. First, due to the large number of lithography steps needed in Integrated Circuits (IC) manufacturing, lithography typically accounts for about 30 percent of the cost of manufacturing. Second, lithography tends to be the technical limiter for further advances in feature size reduction and thus transistor speed and silicon area.

Although lithography is certainly not the only technically important and challenging process in the IC manufacturing flow, historically, advances in lithography have gated advances in IC cost and performance. The main core of any lithography device is its exposure system. Because the minimum feature size that can be transferred with high fidelity to a resist film on the surface of the wafer is highly related to the wavelength of the light source. In this product the vacuum pump has been used to hold the wafer onto the chuck.

Details of technical specifications are presented in the following Table.


To create a device layers of thin films have to be patterned, etched and coated. Lithography combines these processes and can create millions of devices in batch. Thus in order to create micrometer patterns in different substrates and subsequently create nanostructures, lithography has to be done.

  • Lithography must be done in cleanroom.
  • Put the specimen or mask inside the device using gloves and keep the inside chamber free from contaminants.
  • Before exposure and spinning, make sure the vacuum pump is on and the sample is kept on the holder.
  • For more details on how to use the device, refer to the device catalog and user guide.
  • During exposure, be sure to wear UV-protective glasses and do not stare at all.
  • During operation, keep your hair, hands and clothes away from mechanical parts.
  • Avoid moving the device when the heater is still hot.
  • Use forceps to put the specimen on the heater or to remove it.
