Paper Abstract

In the semiconductor equipment business, self-metrology calls for in-situ measurements and diagnostics of the process parameters. For exposure tools, self-diagnostics and self-tuning are the core features. The present paper discusses a dose control system that allows for monitoring, correction and periodic self-calibration of the litho tool. Creation of such a system becomes a task even more complex in view of the aggressive illumination environment - 193 and 157 nm - that makes most traditional optical materials inapplicable; and causes many that are applicable to have time-varying performance.
