Paper Abstract

An electron beam lithography system for nanometer devices has been developed. The target specifications of the system are a Gaussian beam diameter of 10 nm and a beam current of 1 nA, an acceleration voltage of 50 kV, a 500 micrometers X 500 micrometers deflection field and an overlay accuracy of 10 nm (3(sigma) ). To realize such high performance, the following two technologies have been developed for the design of the electron optical column: (1) a low aberration objective lens system with a one stage electrostatic deflector and (2) a thermal field emission (TFE) gun system with a low energy spread and a high brightness Zr/O/W cathode. The exposed results shown are a 30 nm isolated line and a 40 nm lines and spaces. An overlay accuracy of 10 nm are also obtained. This system is capable of being put into practical use in the fabrication of nanometer devices.
