Gigaphoton, Inc. Key Developments
Gigaphoton Inc. Achieves 250W Light Output at 4.0% Conversion Efficiency with Laser-Produced Plasma Light Source Prototype for EUV Scanners
Jul 6 16
Gigaphoton Inc. has announced success in achieving 250W light output at 4.0% conversion efficiency with a Laser-Produced Plasma (LPP) light source prototype for EUV scanners, which the company is currently engaged in developing. At this output level, the light sources can be used in high-volume manufacturing of semiconductors. The company also announced its success in achieving 119 hours of continuous operation at over 130W in testing. This result was achieved via the culmination of a number of efforts that the company has continued to develop, including the sub 20 Î¼m micro droplet supply technology, the combination of solid state pre-pulse and CO2 main pulse lasers, improvements in energy control technology, and magnetic field enabled debris mitigation technology. Gigaphoton has also launched operation of a high-power EUV light source verifier designed for use in a semiconductor high-volume manufacturing environment, and is committed to continuing the development of EUV light sources with high operational rates and reliability in an aim to facilitate their implementation in the high-volume manufacturing of semiconductors.
Gigaphoton Inc to Introduce New Excimer Laser to Flat Panel Display Industry
Jun 23 16
Gigaphoton Inc. announced the successful development of a new series of excimer lasers, the GIGANEX series, an application of Gigaphoton’s highly reliable semiconductor lithography excimer laser technology. In addition, Gigaphoton announced shipment for low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) at large-scale liquid crystal display (LCD) manufacturing plants, mounting the GIGANEX excimer lasers on ultra-compact laser annealing equipment from V-Technology Co. Ltd., a company listed in the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange as 7717. The new GIGANEX series excimer lasers for annealing was developed for exclusive use with equipment from V-Technology for use as a light source during the ultra-compact laser annealing process. By incorporating the ultra-compact laser annealing process characteristics into the existing a-Si panel manufacturing process to crystallize the a-Si into poly-silicon (p-Si), enables the manufacturing of incredibly detailed panels, such as 8K panels, which were previously impossible to create using older a-Si processes. The new process is also suited to larger panel production, affording support for large-scale manufacturing plants that manufacture TV panels ranging from 50 to 70 inches, diagonally. This could not have been possible with existing laser annealing processes.
