Paper Abstract

A Monte Carlo program named SEEL (Simulation of Electron Energy Loss) was developed to simulate electron trajectories in arbitrary line geometries. Submicron scale electronic structures were fabricated in order to compare the simulation with experimental results. SEEL was used to determine the radial exposure distribution for electron energy dissipated in resist during electron beam lithography. A companion program called PRESTO (PRoximity Effect Simulation TOO was developed to predict the exposure of submicron scale patterns. Exposures were made for the purpose of comparing the experimental patterns with simulations.
