Paper Abstract

The characteristics of BSE emission at low beam energies (0.5 to 5 kV) are discussed with reference to signal intensity, topographic contrast, material contrast, charging phenomena, and metrology issues. Experimental results are presented for a back-scattered electron (BSE) detector that has been developed for viewing deep trenches and high-aspect contact holes in the CD-SEM metrology applications.
