Central Florida University, Powerlase Collaborate
Powerlase Ltd. of Crawley, UK, has partnered with the University of Central Florida in Orlando to further develop a high-power laser-produced plasma extreme-UV source. Their aim is to create high extreme-UV conversion efficiency and to eliminate neutral and charged particles. The British company has provided its kilo-class Starlase laser to irradiate the university’s tin-doped microdroplet laser plasma source. Extreme-UV lithography is used for producing semiconductors of 32-nm half-pitch and below.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
