Abstract

Si Gd multilayers designed as narrowband reflective coatings near 63 nm were developed. The highest peak reflectance of 26.2% at a 5 ° incident angle was obtained at 62 nm , and the spectral bandwidth was 7.3 nm FWHM. The fits for x-ray and extreme ultraviolet reflectance data of Si Gd multilayers indicate the possibility of silicide formation at the Si Gd interfaces. B 4 C , W, and SiN were deposited as interface barrier layers to improve the reflectance of Si Gd multilayers. More than an 8% increase in reflectance was observed from the interface-engineered Si W Gd and Si B 4 C Gd multilayers.
