Adaptive shape substrate support system
MetadataShow full item record
The present method and system features an active compliant pin chuck to hold a substrate, having opposed first and second surfaces, and compensates for non-planarity in one of the surfaces of the substrate. To that end, the support system includes a chuck having a plurality of piezo pins and reference pins, with the piezo pins being coupled to piezo actuators to undergo relative movement with respect to said reference pins. These and other embodiments are discussed more fully below.
