An excerpt from the Foreword by Chris Mack:

While sophisticated lithography simulators such as PROLITH are extremely valuable learning tools for the student of lithography, Kevin Berwick in this volume offers another approach to learning through simulation: use the power of the MATLAB environment to enable students write their own code for performing complex lithography calculations. Found within these pages are laboratory “experiments” to be performed in the MATLAB environment. They are, in a sense, extreme homework problems, requiring computational capabilities that often stretch far beyond paper, pencil and calculator. But their very complexity enables a new level of learning – the ability to toy with inputs and examine the resulting outputs in a simulated lithography experience. While seeing a graph showing how an output varies with an input can be instructive, doing the calculations that generate that curve is even more instructive. Kevin Berwick’s MATLAB laboratory manual is a valuable resource for the reader of Fundamental Principles of Optical Lithography. Whether in academia or in industry, performing the laboratories found in this manual will bring one’s lithography learning a little closer to reality.
