1 January 1988 An Improved SEM Technique For Accurate Determination Of MOSFET Channel Length
Author Affiliations +
An improved SEM technique to determine MOS transistor effective channel length is described. The technique utilizes two different chemical etchants under strong illumination to selectively stain/etch the doped regions of the device. Comparison of the SEM measurements to data provided by two different electrical measurement methods shows good agreement (within 0.1 μm).
