Paper Abstract

The sensitivity analysis of fitting (SAF) is a formalism that determines the type of measurements that yields optimum determination precision. SAF is applied to ellipsometric- scatterometry of surface relief gratings and for the optimum measurement configuration predicts a significant improvement compared to the conventional scatterometry measurement configurations. The SF predictions for precision are compared to actual values obtained experimentally, and a qualitative agreement is obtained. The discrepancies between theory and experiment are likely due to inaccurate modeling of the grating.
