Paper Abstract

The work described in this publication details a procedure to determine the capability of the photochemical system utilizing a combination sub-develop and sub-exposure technique. The development of the test procedure concentrated on the ability to minimize the degree of random noise associated with the given response function. A reduction in the noise level allowed for a maximum signal and thus, the ability to detect slight variations within the photochemical constituent. To accomplish this task with application into high volume manufacturing, a two-fold approach was initiated. The first approach utilized a multilevel statistical experimental design. Through the use of RSM, a model was developed to statistically interpret the response as a function of the input variables. The second approach utilized a series of 'single cell' experiments.
