Paper Abstract

We have developed a new system, 'PF-3000', which realizes the pattern shape comparison between CAD layout data and CD-SEM images. Comparison results are expressed as the difference of edge location and area in this system. Moreover, we investigated different methods of shape comparison. Fourier descriptor is one of the most useful method.
