Based on a moving mask deep X-ray lithography concept, a new deep X-ray exposure system with multi stage has been built up, which can fabricate 3 dimensional microstructures with controllable free shaped wall such as inclined, curved and vertical wall. The system has 6 stages, an X-stage and a Y-stage for substrate scanning, a substrate tilt stage and a substrate rotation stage for controlling an incident X-ray angle to a substrate, an X–Y stage for mask movement and X–Y stage for substrate and mask alignment. The system performance has been confirmed by fabricating microstructures such as gratings, micro grid and micro prism.
