Paper Abstract

For accurate measurements of structures with sharp edges, as found on photomasks and wafers, polarization methods are useful because edges provide a unique polarization-effect: depending on geometrical form and material of the edge, its effect on the incident polarization is different. We have developed three different methods for polarization- utilization: (1) polarization interferometry, (2) Jones- matrix microscopy, and (3) quantitative phase-contrast. All three procedures are incorporated into one set-up. We describe the set-up and its measurement modes.
