How was ELRC formed?

ELRC was formed by a group of scientists, engineers, technicians, and marketing professionals who saw an opportunity to provide the Cymer® excimer laser user community with cost reduction solutions and second source support. As excimer laser technology became increasingly used in advanced semiconductor manufacturing, customers expressed serious concerns over the tremendous operating expenses associated with these lasers, especially on older generations of laser models.  ELRC was formed to address these concerns by developing cost reduction solutions for Cymer® excimer laser users.
