Paper Abstract

In this paper, we will investigate methods for adapting model-based OPC tools to do layout correction (biasing) for mask makgin proximity effects. (Mask Proximity Correction). We will discuss three aspects of this problem: (1) typical models to use for mask making; (2) calibration of the model using mask measurement data; (3) one-pass versus two-pass flows for correction of mask making proximity effects.
