Paper Abstract

The Double Patterning lithography (DPL) process is a well known method to overcome the k1 limit below 0.25, but the pattern final performance (OVL/CD) get more sensitive with the initial core CD uniformity, one of the main factors is across wafer CD uniformity control. Previous improvements applying scanner dose or PEB temperature multi-zone control, the others use the vacuum PEB plate design. In this study, we adopt various DPL sacrificial layers to modify wafer warpage level, it can adjust a suitable wafer warpage profile. By this method, we can achieve 30% CD uniformity improvement without the scanner dose/ PEB multi-zone heating compensation,
