Abstract

We developed an astigmatic autofocus optics and a control unit which were implemented in a direct laser writing system for a large area patterning process. The autofocus module is comprised of a collimated laser, a quadrant photodiode, an astigmatic lens, and a few polarizing optics. This system has a 0.526 V/μm focus error signal resolution in the 50x objective lens and a surface tracking capability of under 1 mm/s XY translation stage speed. In this study, we conducted a patterning experiment using SU-8 photocurable resist on a silicon wafer to study the accuracy of the astigmatic autofocus system. We highlighted some features of this system for future improvement.


Keywords: Autofocus, Astigmatism, Direct laser writing, 3D patterning
