Collection: 193nm DUV Bandpass Filter

  1. Photolithography in Semiconductor Manufacturing: The most prominent application of 193 nm light is in photolithography for semiconductor manufacturing. This wavelength is used in excimer laser lithography systems to pattern very fine features on semiconductor wafers. The short wavelength allows for the creation of circuits with extremely small features, crucial for advanced microprocessors and memory devices.

  2. Material Research and Processing: Due to its high energy and ability to break molecular bonds, 193 nm light is used in the processing of materials, particularly in etching and surface modification. It's effective in precisely altering material properties without contact, which is advantageous in sensitive applications.

  3. Spectroscopy: Deep UV light at 193 nm is utilized in spectroscopic methods to study the electronic transitions in molecules. This is important in chemical analysis, where it helps identify substances and understand their properties based on how they absorb or emit light at this wavelength.

  4. Microbial Disinfection: While not as common as longer-wavelength UV light for sterilization, 193 nm UV light is used in some specialized disinfection applications, where its strong germicidal properties can effectively inactivate bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens.

  5. Medical Applications: In medicine, 193 nm UV light is used in certain types of eye surgery, such as photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), which reshapes the cornea to correct refractive errors in vision.
