Paper Abstract

Sub-50 nm isolated line pattern is successfully formed by KrF lithography with DOF larger than 0.5 micrometers . This is performed by using a phase edge type phase shift mask, a special photo resist and a partial dry ashing process. Because all of these elemental techniques currently becomes mature, this method is one of promising candidates for sub- 50 nm isolated line pattern formation. As a conclusion, we consider KrF lithography can be extended to sub-50 nm high speed logic node.
