(sc) a machine which steps a reticle directly onto the wafer. A reticle can be produced at lower defect level and with tighter dimensional control than an entire mask, resulting in wafer images having fewer defects. Alignment of reticle to wafer is accomplished by reflecting a laser beam through a special reticle pattern (alignment target) and off a corresponding pattern on the wafer.
