Paper Abstract

EUV mask is a reflection-type-mask, of which film and structure are very different from those of existing masks (e.g. Cr and MoSi). LWM9000 SEM of Vistec/Advantest was used for measurement of EUV masks. Two types of EUV masks were used to investigate static and dynamic measurement precision and the impact of charge-up by e-beam irradiation during measurement. An optional function of LWM9000 SEM was used to improve static precision. Because the LWM9000 SEM uses ozone for in-situ cleaning of the work chamber, the interaction between the electron beam and ozone presence was also investigated. The EUV mask was evaluated at the EUV wavelength before and after e-beam scanning and measurements to determine any changes in reflectance.
