Paper Abstract

Dose Margin has always been known to be a critical factor in mask making. This paper describes why the issue is far more critical than ever before with the 20-nm logic node and beyond using ArF Immersion lithography. Model-Based Mask Data Preparation (MB-MDP) had been presented [references] to show shot count improvements for these complex masks. This paper describes that MBMDP also improves the dose margin. The improvement predicted with theoretical simulation with D2S is confirmed by the results of real mask written by JBX-3200MV (JEOL) by HOYA.
