Paper Abstract

Resolution enhancement technologies (RETs) are so far widely proposed in improving the quality of micro-lithography process. Latest methods such as source mask optimization (SMO) and inverse lithography technology (ILT) are gaining popularity recently. Therefore, high speed simulator is in strong demand for growing computational complexity of RETs. In this paper, we demonstrate that our previously proposed Abbe-PCA is highly efficient for source configuring and pixel-based ILT mask tuning.
