Abstract / Bemerkung
Silicon wafer and multilayer-coated mirror samples were exposed to impact of drops of molten tin to examine the adhesion behavior and cleaning possibilities. The sticking of tin droplets to horizontal substrates was examined for different surface conditions in a high vacuum chamber. Silicon wafers without a coating, with thick oxide top layer, and also with differently capped Mo/Si multilayer coatings optimized for reflection at a wavelength of 13.5 nm were exposed to tin dripping. Depending on the substrate temperature and coating, adhesion as well as detachment with self-peeling and self-contraction of spreaded drops was observed. The adhesion strength of solidified tin splats decreased strongly with decreasing substrate temperature. Non-sticking surface conditions could be generated by substrate super-cooling. The morphology of non-sticking tin droplets was analyzed by profilometry. Adhering deposits were converted in situ via induction of tin pest by infection with gray tin powder and cooling of the samples. The phase transition was recorded by photographic imaging. It caused material embrittlement and detachment after structural transformation within several hours and enabled facile removal of tin contamination without coating damage. The temperature-dependent contamination behavior of tin drops has implications for the preferred operating conditions of extreme ultraviolet light sources with collection optics exposed to tin debris.
