Paper Abstract

Convergence speed and local minimum issue have been the major issues for inverse lithography. In this paper, we propose an inverse algorithm that employs an iterative gradient-descent method to improve convergence and reduce the Edge Placement Error (EPE). The algorithm employs a constrained gradient-based optimization to attain the fast converging speed, while a cross-weighting technique is introduced to overcome the local minimum trapping.
