Paper Abstract

The use of high lens numerical aperture for improving the resolution of a lithographic lens requires a high incident angle of exposure light in resist, which induces vectorial effects. As a result, high NA lithography has become more sensitive to vectorial effects, and a vectorial fingerprint with higher accuracy has become necessary for effective image forming simulation. We successfully obtained true polarization characteristics of single optics by separating the effect of measurement optics, arranged serially, in the measurement optical path. Accuracy of the separated polarization characteristics of two test birefringent optics on a testbench for principle verification was calculated to be better than 0.01 nm of OPE simulation error.
