Paper Abstract

Numerical algorithms employing the ID imaging model and the 2D wave-guide scattering model were implemented to achieve high speed in simulating high NA i-line processes. The CPU consumption and the range of validity of the models used were discussed. The simulator was applied to study the possibility of imaging 0.35/mi lines and spaces(L/S) utilizing lenses of NA=0.55, 0.60 and 0.65 and single layer resist (SLR) processes.
