Title: Testing of Radiation Hardness in the Extreme-Ultraviolet Spectral Region

Abstract

Currently we are commissioning a second multilayer-based beamline to study the radiation hardness of multilayers under extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) irradiation in an oxidizing atmosphere. Multilayer lifetime is one of the most important issues for the commercialization of extreme-ultraviolet lithography. The beamline employs a spherical multilayer mirror and a beryllium filter. The mirror demagnifies the source and reflects 13.4 nm radiation as well as visible light. The beryllium filter suppresses the visible light reflected by the mirror and provides also a barrier between the extremely clean storage ring vacuum and the water atmosphere of the test chamber.

  • Saran foils of 4000-A thickness have been fabricated and used astransmission filters in the extreme ultraviolet spectral region. Thetransmittances of the Saran foils were determined for the 20--620-Awavelength region. The foils transmitted radiation with wavelengths between the/ital L/ absorption edge of chlorine at 61.4 and /similar to/120 A.
  • The measurements of the full-disk solar EUV flux summed over broad spectral bands in this region is shown to be critically dependent on the determination of the level of scattered radiation and other background. The EUV fluxes of some strong lines are reported, as are the total fluxes summed over 10-A intervals, based on an Aerobee rocket experiment on November 9, 1971. Significant improvement in the peak-to-background ratio was achieved in the measurements below 100 A. The present state of solar EUV measurements below 205 A is reviewed, and a summary of the results from several Air Force Cambridge Researchmore » Laboratories experiments is presented. The use of EUV flux models scaled with the 10.7-cm solar radio flux is discussed. (AIP)« less
  • The cause of the lower intensities of extreme-ultraviolet (EUV) He II lines emitted by coronal hole (CH) plasmas compared with quiet Sun (QS) plasmas has been the subject of many studies dating back over half a century. In this paper, we study the effect of small amounts of 'hot' electrons at coronal temperatures (T{sub e} = 1.4 x 10{sup 6} K) on the intensities of EUV He II lines, as well as on the intensities of EUV lines of C III, C IV, O III, and O IV emitted by 1.5 x 10{sup 4} K-1.5 x 10{sup 5} K (4.2more » <= log T{sub e} <= 5.2) plasmas in the QS. We show that although the influence of a fraction as small as 10{sup -4}-10{sup -3} of hot electrons on the intensities of the C and O lines is noticeable, the effect on the intensities of the He lines is much larger, to the extent that it could explain the excess brightness of He II lines emitted by QS regions relative to CH plasmas.« less
  • We have been making spectral measurements in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV) from different laboratory sources in order to investigate the electron density dependence of various astrophysically important emission lines and to test the atomic models underlying the diagnostic line ratios. The measurement are being performed at the Livermore EBIT-I electron beam ion trap, the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) at Princeton, and the Alcator C-Mod tokamak at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which together span an electron density of four orders of magnitude and which allow us to test the various models at high and low density limits. Here wemore » present measurements of Fe XXII and Ar XIV, which include new data from an ultra high resolution ({lambda}/{Delta}{lambda} >4000) spectrometer at the EBIT-I facility. We found good agreement between the measurements and modeling calculations for Fe XXII, but poorer agreement for Ar XIV.« less
