Paper Abstract

High particle removal efficiency (PRE) up to 99%+ without damage to sub-50 nm linewidth features has been demonstrated using a mixed fluid jet technology and sulfur-free chemistry. This high PRE was achieved with several types of deposited particles, including polystyrene latex spheres. Damage-free cleaning was demonstrated on binary and phase shift masks with Cr and MoSi structures. All masks were processed using the TetraTM mask cleaning tool configured with the NanoDropletTM mixed fluid jet technology.
