Electrodeless Z-Pinch™
10 Watt EUV Source


Enables EUV Lithography

The EQ-10R is a perfect choice for EUV research and development projects.

For researchers in EUV lithography, existing sources of light are often too low in power, unreliable in operation, large, costly, and complex.

The EQ-10R is a compact, easy-to-use, reliable, and cost-effective EUV light source, based on Energetiq's proven Electrodeless Z-Pinch™ technology using Xenon gas. With over 50 EQ-10R units installed around the world, it has become the workhorse for the EUV community through its proven reliability, ease of use, and low operating cost. Its modular design makes it easy to integrate into your process.

The system includes the Electrodeless Z-Pinch™ source assembly, vacuum and gas subsystems, power delivery subsystem, and control electronics. The EQ-10R is capable of delivering up to 10 Watts of in-band EUV into 2 pi steradians, and will run continuously at pulse repetition rates of up to 2 kHz.
