Paper Abstract

The measurement of critical dimensions (CDs) as small as 0.5 μm is essential to the characterization and control of submicron optical lithography. This paper describes a newly developed system using an ultraviolet laser and the results which have been obtained on various photoresist images, etched patterns, and substrates. A plot of these optical measurements versus SEM measurements shows an offset as expected. However, the data has an excellent linear relation down to below 0.5 um in all the samples above. The excellent results of the resist measurement come from not only the high resolution, but the reduction of the interference effect.
