Abstract

A wire grid polarizer comprised of chromium oxide is designed for a micro-lithography system using an ArF excimer laser. Optical properties for some material candidates are calculated using a rigorous coupled-wave analysis. The chromium oxide wire grid polarizer with a 90 nm period is fabricated by a double-patterning technique using KrF lithography and dry etching. The extinction ratio of the grating is greater than 20 dB (1001) at a wavelength of 193 nm. Differences between the calculated and experimental results are discussed.
