Paper Abstract

The measurement of critical dimensions of features on integrated circuits and photomasks is modeled as the comparison of the images of the test object and of a standard object in a measuring device. A length measuring instrument is then a comparator. The calibration of the standard and the conditions necessary for a valid comparison are discussed. The principles discussed here apply to many other types of measurement as well.
