Christopher A Spence: Piezo programmable reticle for EUV lithography. Advanced Micro Devices, Renner Otto Boisselle & Skar, March 12, 2002: US06356340 (26 worldwide citation)

A programmable reticle has a plurality of addressable pixels. Each of the pixels has one or more elastic elements which underlie a reflective surface, the elements each being activatable for selectively deforming part of the reflective surface. The amount of deformation is such that light reflected ...
