Home > Press > IMS Nanofabrication Announces Partnership with JEOL for the Realization of Alpha and Beta Electron Multi-Beam Mask Writer (MBMW) Tools

Abstract:
IMS Nanofabrication AG (IMS) (www.ims.co.at) announced today that a partnership was formed with JEOL Ltd. (www.jeol.co.jp/en/) for the realization of Alpha and Beta electron multi-beam mask writer (MBMW) tools for the 10nm half-pitch mask technology node. For this purpose IMS Nanofabrication has developed and demonstrated a multi-beam write engine providing 262-thousand programmable beams of 50keV energy. JEOL provides a novel platform with an air-bearing vacuum stage for writing most advanced patterns on 6-inch mask blanks. The MBMW Alpha tool will be realized in 2014, and will form the basis for two consecutive MBMW Beta tools which will be built for the MBMW Collaboration formed by IMS with DNP, Intel, Photronics and TSMC.

About IMS Nanofabrication AG
IMS Nanofabrication AG (“IMS”) is an Austrian based high-tech company that was founded in December 2006 through the merger of the former IMS Nanofabrication GmbH and IMS - Ionen Mikrofabrikations Systeme GmbH. Based on its extensive know-how in charged particle systems, IMS offers solutions to directly transfer custom designed patterns to resist or to generate resist-less two and three dimensional surface modifications with features below 20 nanometers. IMS focuses its efforts on the development and production of key tool components for mask writing and direct write lithography applications. It plans to commercialize its technology and related services in cooperation with strategic investors and partners involved in the mask and lithography ecosystem.
