PTB and ASML are putting a new test beamline into operation at BESSY


Increasing miniaturization in the microelectronic sector has created inevitable facts: In the future, structures on microchips and on other components will have to be manufactured by means of lithography in the EUV range, which means using extremely short wavelengths of just 13.5 nm. For test measurements, the...
