Paper Abstract

This paper focuses on the capability of the spectroscopic scatterometry method to determine holes features parameters from experimental 3D-target. Scatterometry uses optical tools for spectra recording as ellipsometer form KLA TENCOR and a MMFE (Modal Method of Fourier Expansion) software tool including an advanced electromagnetic simulator and an optimization loop for data extraction. This study reports on 3D-MMFE regression of different dense holes square and rectangular matrix structures on the simplest structure-resist on silicon-to extract diameter, height of the holes. The holes diameter is from 90nm to 500nm, and the duty ratio is from 1:1 to 2:2 (CD/Space). To be close to real production stack the same matrices have been studied on more complex stack (close to via level with different dielectric material: FSG, dense SiOC). Finally this study is focused on an analysis on simulation and experiment of the relative sensitivity position of a hole inside the basic element of diffraction. That shows the possibility of scatterometry measurement in detecting via shift.
