Containing the cost of new generations of optical lithography, while maintaining improvements in performance, is a major challenge because every three years tends to see a requirement for a three‐fold increase in the number of resolvable pixels and a substantial improvement in resolution. Here an optical approach is reported that promises to ameliorate the rapidly increasing cost of optical systems through the means of 1×, mostly reflecting optics. Only three projective components are required and the spectral range is 1000× larger than that of corresponding refractive systems. Such a system appears capable of meeting the lithography requirements of the 256 Mbit dynamic random access memory (DRAM) and, with evolutionary improvements, the 1 Gbit DRAM.
