Paper Abstract

As the design rule continues to shrink towards 65nm and beyond, the defect criteria is becoming ever more challenging. The pattern fidelity and reticle defects that were once considered as insignificant or nuisance are now migrating to yield-limiting. As a result, it is important to conduct After Develop Inspection (ADI) to identify where in the process the small contamination and particles originate from. The intent of this study is to identify the defect source by utilizing KLA-Tencor's SLF die-to-die reflected light mode and ADI algorithm for the post development resist layer inspection.
