Paper Abstract

This paper present an evaluation of our CMOS 45nm gate patterning process performance based on immersion lithography in a production environment. A CD budget breakdown is shown detailing lot to lot, wafer to wafer, intrawafer, intrafield and proximity CD uniformity characterization. Emphasis is given on scatterometry library development and deployment. We also look more into detail to focus effect on CD control. Finally status of overlay performance with immersion lithography is also presented.
