Paper Abstract

Results are presented of dimensional measurements on 6 inch photomasks manufactured for the critical layers of a sub-half- micron CMOS process. Measurements show that dimensional control is excellent across individual plates but that capability indices are impaired by drift of mean-mean between individual photomasks. The measurement tool used was shown to be incapable of supporting the advanced manufacturing specification but its performance was improved by taking multi-point measurements.
