Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography ARCNL

The Advanced Research Center for Nanolithography is a new type of public-private partnership between the University of Amsterdam, the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), and ASML.

Momentous inventions are rooted in groundbreaking discoveries. That is why at ARCNL we venture into unknown territory, while at the same time looking towards industry for inspiration. EUV lithography is currently the most promising new technology for semiconductor production. We therefore mainly focus on the physics that is central to the generation of high intensities of extreme ultraviolet light and its use in nanolithography. We try to be the first to understand and control certain physical processes at the atomic scale and beyond. Over time our program will evolve so that we can remain at the frontier of nanolithography research.

ARCNL currently has ten research groups, each exploring its own field:

 Materials & Surface Science for EUV Lithography

The Materials and Surface Science for EUV Lithography group will focus on understanding the elementary physical and chemical processes occurring at surfaces relevant to nanolithography and will explore new materials …

 EUV Plasma Processes

This group uses an extensive diagnostic toolset to characterize and understand the physics of plasma sources of EUV light at the atomic level.

 EUV Targets

This group uses high-intensity ultrafast lasers and spectroscopy to study  the physics of laser-induced ultrasonics for sub-surface inspection applications and to study laser-induced damage on metals and dielectrics.

 EUV Generation & Imaging

This group aims to obtain a fundamental understanding of the physical processes occurring in laser-produced plasmas and to control the emission of radiation and particles. It is also exploring the …

 Nanolayers

This group studies surfaces, interfaces, and very thin films on the atomic scale. The knowledge it generates is relevant for the delicate optics and other essential components of modern lithography machines.
