EUV optics enable ever finer structures on computer chips with high transistor density, powerful and energy-efficient capability. During this talk we will share how EUV light is generated for high-volume chip manufacturing. Then we will review how EUV mirrors collect and direct the light from laser-produced plasma to photomasks and transform tiny patterns to silicon wafers. We will discuss technical challenges associated with the mirrors. Finally, we would like to discuss how Rochester optical community can contribute.
