Abstract

A way to detect with high resolution the position of a wafer and a mask is proposed and evaluated. In this method, a grating mark on a wafer or a mask is detected by heterodyne interference using a He–Ne Zeeman laser. Experiments show that the position of a wafer or a mask could be detected with a resolution of ~0.01 μm.
