Paper Abstract

The resolution capabilities of lithographic tools are being progressively pushed to allow the replication of increasingly smaller lithographic features1'2 The target for 0.5-micron resolution is almost past; 0.4-micron resolution is of keen interest; and the goal of 0.35 micron is just around the corner. The overlay requirements using the familiar rule of thumb of Overlay = Resolution I 4 indicates that a 0.10-micron (mean plus 3 sigma) specification is required for 0.40-micron resolution tools. This is not an easy task. We will explore it in the context of a Step-and-Scan' alignment system.
