Albany, New York, May 26 , 2017: Semiconductor lithography also called semiconductor photolithography is a method of fabrication of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and microprocessors. It transfers a circuit image to a silicon wafer by exposing both silicon wafer and photomask to ultraviolet light. It then projects the circuit image on the wafer. It is also called UV or optical lithography. It is a microfabrication technique in which semiconductor circuitry is patterned from the photomask onto a silicon wafer using a light source, especially UV light. The light source is passed through an ultra-high precision lens in order to obtain fine patterning design.
