Paper Abstract

In order to achieve inspection sensitivity and a attainability for 1× node, a projection electron microscopy (PEM) system is employed that enables us to do high-speed/ high-resolution inspection that is not possible with the conventional DUV and EB inspection systems. By selecting a higher electron energy in imaging using Electron Optics (EO) exposure, and by applying a newly designed model to the basic PEM optics model, we have minimized the aberration in imaging that occurs when working with EO; and we have improved the related transmittance of such a system. The experimental result by showing designs for the improved transmittance, is obtained by making electron throughput measurement.
