Paper Abstract

The difference in the curves of the zeroth order cross- polarization reflection coefficients vs. angle of incidence have remarkable potential for application in scatterometry since, if larger than the measurement error, could allow for a reliable nondestructive technique to detect asymmetries in grating profiles. In this paper the cross-polarization efficiencies of metallic gratings with asymmetric grooves are investigated theoretically by means of a rigorous electromagnetic code. The result show that the differences between p yields s and s yields p conversion efficiencies tend to be undetectable for highly conducting materials, limiting, in principle, the application of this potential detection technique.
