The use of optical lithography modeling as a tool for evaluating proximity effects is described. An extension of the critical dimension error for a one-dimensional mask feature to a critical shape error for a two-dimensional mask feature is presented. Simulation is applied to the evaluation of mask shaping (also called optical proximity correction) using the critical shape error as a metric.
