Paper Abstract

This paper describes different simplified simulation models which characterize the behavior of the photoresist during lithography processes. The effectiveness of these models is compared with the results of more physics and chemistry containing simulators. The strengths and weaknesses of the simplified models are demonstrated for practical applications. Simplified resist model parameters are calibrated for 193nm chemically amplified resists (CAR). The results are compared with calibration of full simulation models. The validity of the simulation models under different process conditions is investigated.
