Paper Abstract

Zygo Advanced Imaging Group's TINT Virtual Stepper Defect Analysis System's ability to predict CD printability of various known features on photomasks is tested. These features are analyzed with the TINT Virtual Stepper (VSS) software using known stepper parameters, and subsequently printed using a stepper with the same parameters. CD measurements, SEM imaging, and CD SEM analysis of the feature sites are compared to determine the ability of the TINT Virtual Stepper to accurately simulate feature CD printability.
