Paper Abstract

The pitch of a Hitachi Standard Micro Scale was measured using NanoCal and a LEO 1560 SEM. The pitch pedigree and certification were intentionally withheld from Nanometrology team members to enable independent measurement and certification of an unknown Hitachi Micro Scale standard during this work. NanoCal allows one to achieve pitch measurements with sub-nanometer accuracy and precision as well as to perform SEM magnification calibration with the precision and accuracy required for sub 90 nm SEM metrology.
