Paper Abstract

A novel mask structure for an alternating aperture phase shift mask (Alt-PSM) to cut mask cost is proposed. By a mask with structure of an embedded attenuating phase shift mask (Atten-PSM), an Alt-PSM for an isolated line formation can be well fabricated. Fine image quality is confirmed with optical image calculations. Moreover, concept of this novel mask is proved by a preliminary experiment. In conclusion, this novel mask can replace conventional Alt-PSM for logic devices, resulting in considerable cut of mask cost.
