A lithographic projection apparatus for EUV lithography includes a foil trap, or channel barrier. The foil trap forms an open structure after the source to let the radiation pass unhindered. The foil trap is configured to be rotatable around an optical axis. By rotating the foil trap, an impulse transverse to the direction of propagation of the radiation can be transferred on debris present in the beam. This debris will not pass the foil trap. In this way, the amount of debris on the optical components downstream of the foil trap is reduced. The foil trap may be alternately rotated around the optical axis in a first direction and a second direction opposite the first direction.
