JEOL JBX-8100FS Series Electron Beam Lithography System


JEOL JBX-8100FS Series Electron Beam Lithography System

When designing the new JBX-8100F, we took a completely new approach in terms of design and performance. By building on our proven lithography system, we created the JBX-8100F from the ground up. This allowed us to implement changes on a scale which would not be possible by incremental changes. While the new exterior design with its reduced footprint might be most striking at first glance, it's the changes within the system what truly constitute a leap forward. By using non-standard parts, we increased the freedom for our engineering team to design tailor made parts with higher performance.

The results is a truly innovative lithography system with a modular design, a reduced footprint and power consumption as well as the world highest scanning speed for even the most challenging applications.

In short, the new JBX-8100FS is quite simply the most innovative lithography system we have ever built.


  1. Small footprint
    Reducing the instrument's footprint to 4.9 m (W) x 3.7 m (D) x 2.6 m (H) helps to conserve valuable clean room space.

  2. Low power consumption
    The power consumption has been reduced by over 30%.

  3. High throughput
    By minimizing the idle time during exposure and increasing the maximum scanning speed to 125 MHz and by employing two new exposure modes, allows patterning from ultra fine structures to mid size production.

  4. Modularity
    The JBX-8100FS is available in 2 versions: G1 (entry model) and G2 (full option model). Optional accessories can be added to the G1 model as needed.

  5. New Functions
    An optical microscope is available to enable examination of patterns on the sample without exposing resist to light.

  6. Laser positioning resolution
    The new ultra-high precision stage measures and controls the position of the stage at increments of up to 0.15 nm.

  7. System control
    Versatile Linux® operating system combined with a new graphic user interface provides ease in operation. The data preparation program supports both Linux® and Windows®.
