  • Patent number: 10503084
    Abstract: A lithographic projection apparatus is disclosed in which a space between the projection system and the substrate is filled with a liquid. An edge seal member at least partly surrounds the substrate or other object on a substrate table to prevent liquid loss when edge portions of the substrate or other object are, for example, imaged or illuminated. A lithographic projection apparatus includes a support structure configured to hold a patterning device, the patterning device configured to pattern a beam of radiation according to a desired pattern; a substrate table configured to hold a substrate; a projection system configured to project the patterned beam onto a target portion of the substrate; a liquid supply system configured to provide liquid to a space between the projection system and the substrate; and a shutter configured to isolate the space from the substrate or a space to be occupied by a substrate.

  • Patent number: 9927711
    Abstract: An actuator to displace, for example a mirror, provides movement with at least two degrees of freedom by varying the currents in two electromagnets (370). A moving part includes a permanent magnet (362) with a magnetic face constrained to move over a working area lying substantially in a first plane perpendicular to a direction of magnetization of the magnet. The electromagnets have pole faces lying substantially in a second plane closely parallel to the first plane, each pole face substantially filling a quadrant of the area traversed by the face of the moving magnet. A ferromagnetic shield (820) is provided around the moving part and has at least one interruption (822) to reduce the influence of adjacent actuators or stray fields while also minimizing attraction between the permanent magnet (362) and the shield (820).
