Paper Abstract

Experimental lithographic data are presented that show that ArF can comfortably be extended to the 65-nm node. All features in the designs were patterned with alternating phase-shift lithography according to the Full-Phase methodology without any form of optical proximity corrections. Process windows through-pitch, latitude trade-off curves, CD uniformity and pitch linearity are presented. Furthermore, the emphasis is on 2-dimensional design performance for 60, 70 and 80-nm node designs at k1 values as low as 0.28. The current ArF infrastructure for mask making, step-and-scan systems, and resist technology was used for this.
