Paper Abstract

Resist parameters for computational lithography model were extracted from a set of gratings. The gratings comprised of lines and spaces where the main feature proximity was modulated by placement of sub and near resolution assist features. Modulating the size of the assist features resulted in simultaneous variation of the amount of photo-acid and developer loading. The straight Gaussian kernel was modified to represent the effect of base quencher to the photo-acid. An additional density based kernel was created to represent the effect of developer loading. These kernels allowed for significant improvement in fitting error. The models were validated against an independent data-set comprised of asymmetric features.
