Paper Abstract

Double patterning (DP) is today the accepted solution to extend immersion lithography to the 32 nm node and beyond. Pitch splitting process and spacer process have been developed at CEA-LETI-Minatec. This paper will focus on the optimization of dry etching process to achieve these two patterning techniques. For each approach, we first discuss the choices of the starting integration flows based on the requirements to etch the final devices. Then, we develop how the etching steps were optimized to get a good step by step CD control for 45nm/45nm features.
