Paper Abstract

A method has been suggested for measuring the line width of trapezoidal profile relief elements on a scanning electron microscope (SEM) for cases where the electron probe diameter is greater than the measured size. The method has been demonstrated on low voltage SEM. The minimum size that could be measured was 13 nm, which is almost in 2 times smaller than the low voltage SEM electron probe diameter.
