Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Reticle Pod

Industry's first commercially available pod

Entegris’ extreme ultraviolet light (EUV) reticle pod is designed to provide defect-free protection of EUV reticles during storage, handling and vacuum-transfer operations. Designed with OEM and customer collaboration, the EUV pod interfaces with production equipment such as scanners, metrology tools and stockers. In addition to its automation compatibility, it is compliant with SEMI® Standard E152.

The dual pod design offers an inner and outer pod to maintain a contamination-free environment. The pods have undergone various testing to prove it will successfully enable EUV lithography and is the industry’s first commercial pod available.
