Paper Abstract

The linewidth fluctuation which is caused by interference effect is a very serious problem for critical dimension (CD) control. Three simple resist linewidth fluctuation reduction methods are investigated. These methods are high-contrast resists, dyed resists, and contrast enhancement material (CEM). One-micron line and space patterns of various resist thicknesses are formed on silicide by exposing with a g-line stepper and the degree of linewidth fluctuation is measured. As a r result of the investigation, the high-contrast resist is the most effective method and the degree of linewidth fluctuation of the high-contrast resist is suppressed to about 60% of that of a conventional resist. The degree of linewidth fluctuation of the dyed resist and CEM used with the conventional resist is about 65 and 80% of that of the conventional resist, respectively. Therefore it is considered that high-contrast resist is the most effective method for tight CD control which is needed for 4MDRAM-level devices.
