Paper Abstract

Improvement of pattern placement accuracy is an important factor for the development of the electron beam (EB) lithography system for the next-generation photomask. It has been qualitatively pointed out that pattern shift error is induced by surface distortion of photomask. In this paper, we quantified pattern shift error induced by mask process and have identified aeolotropic magnification error and negligible orthogonality error. These results obtained by experiment and simulation indicate that attention must be paid to pattern shift error induced by mask process in fabrication of the next-generation photomask. Thus, a more rigid and stiffer photomask will be required to reduce pattern shift error induced by coating and developing.
