Global Photomask Market Definition
Photomasks are image-transfer tools that are created by exposing or writing a pattern onto a resist-coated chrome blank device. They are made up of solid, transparent substrates with an opaque surface covering. They come in a variety of varieties and are used in a variety of applications, including microlithography and integrated circuits (ICs). Photomasks are increasingly commonly used for correctly transferring patterns to silicon wafers as transistors become smaller and more advanced.
