  • Publication number: 20210294222
    Abstract: When replacing a mirror in a projection exposure apparatus, a mirror for replacement is initially removed (41). Position- and orientation data of the removed mirror for replacement are measured (43) by a position-and orientation data measuring device. Furthermore, position- and orientation data of a replacement mirror, to be inserted in place of the mirror for replacement, are measured (46) using the position- and orientation data measuring device. Bearing points of the replacement mirror are reworked (48) on the basis of ascertained differences between, firstly, the position- and orientation data of the mirror for replacement and, secondly, the position- and orientation data of the replacement mirror. The reworked replacement mirror is installed (54). This yields a mirror replacement method, in which an adjustment outlay of the replacement mirror in the projection exposure apparatus is reduced.
