Paper Abstract

In this work, we analyzed resist CD uniformity on 6025 substrates in terms of resist PEB sensitivity, PEB time, temperature variation during ramp up, hotplate vacuum and the application of a chill plate. We found that the resist PEB sensitivity, PEB time and the final temperature were the most important factors. By selecting low PEB sensitive resist and optimizing the bake conditions, the CD uniformity was greatly improved. The temperature profile of the hotplate configuration used for this study will be discussed along with the CD uniformity obtained using this hotplate under various conditions.
