EUV mask-related inspection systems

Lasertec embarked on the development of high-performance inspection systems for EUV lithography early on and has diligently devoted time and effort to acquire technical expertise in the area of EUV mask blank inspection and EUV mask inspection.

Semiconductor-related inspection systems

Semiconductor devices are manufactured by printing very small integrated circuits (ICs) on silicon wafers by transferring IC patterns from their blueprints on photomasks in a process called lithography. Photomasks must be flawless, and Lasertec's inspection systems are used to inspect these photomasks and their unpatterned plates with optical technology.
