Heidelberg Instruments to support micro and nano research at the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility

Heidelberg, Germany | Posted on November 26th, 2009

The DWL 2000 system will enable the user to expose sub micron structures on photoresist, with an active write area of up to 200 mm by 200 mm.

"CNF has a long history of providing in-house mask making capability to facility users at an affordable cost. This allows rapid cycle time from concept to prototype. CNF has recently installed a modern DUV (248nm) stepper that requires 0.7 Ám features at the mask. The current tools render mask production too slow to meet this new requirement, creating an economic barrier to using the DUV system. The new DWL 2000 system from Heidelberg Instruments combines the large high speed scanning field with high resolution optics and stage precision that recovers the low cost structure for in-house mask fabrication." states Don Tennant, Director of Operations at the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility.
