Paper Abstract

The development of robust photolithography processes requires methodologies for efficiently finding operating conditions that will minimize the sensitivity of critical dimension control to the effects of inevitable manufacturing variability. Photolithography modeling coupled with a Monte Carlo sampling scheme and contemporary statistical design techniques accelerate the identification of the best operating conditions by reducing the number of needed process development experiments.
