Paper Abstract

From 28nm technology node and below, Optical Proximity Correction (OPC) needs to take into account light scattering effects from prior layers when bottom anti-reflective coating (BARC) is not used, which is typical for implant layers. In this paper, we implement a sub-layer aware simulation method into a verification tool for Optical Rule Check (ORC) that is used on full 28nm test chip. The sub-layer aware verification can predict defects that are missed by standard ORC. SEM-CD review and defectivity analysis were used to confirm the validity of the sub-layer aware model on wafer.
