Paper Abstract

Realtime digital image processing of highly magnified optical images - Digital Microscopy - provides the basis for dramatic improvements in the rapid and repeatable acquisition of key process control information - CD's, registration, defect data. Metrology: Wafer and mask features down to .25u can now be repeatably measured optically. Techniques used in extending the minimum optical width measurement from ~l-1.5ji to .25|i will be discussed. Registration: Mask to wafer registration and layer to layer registration can now be measured with a standard deviation of .0033ji using box within a box or similar patterns. Inspection: High speed comparison to "golden" images stored in memory gives a quick look capability in addition to more extensive defect detection and coordinate determination capability. A variety of image processing functions will be discussed.
