Paper Abstract

To describe complex acid/quencher interaction and their mutual diffusion in imaging with chemically amplified resist films, our acid-quencher mutual diffusion/quenching model is implemented to the fast resist image simulator. Accuracy better than 10-nm was obtained over wide varieties of 0.13- node metal-level pattern features. The model also suggested that diffusion of quencher, as well as that of acid, significantly degrades proximity effects and MEF.
