Paper Abstract

A 157nm interference lithography system which is capable of patterning features at sub-100-nm pitch has been implemented. Initial results demonstrate approximately 50 nm line and space patterns exposed in a commercial deep-UV photoresists. Little line edge roughness is observed, indicating that the intrinsic properties of the resist may meet CD-control requirements to at least 50 nm. In addition, this system may be used to measure the spatial coherence of the 157-nm F2 laser source. Preliminary estimates show that the coherence length is approximately 40 micrometers .
