21 May 1996 Efficient workstation-based 3D model for optical alignment simulation
Author Affiliations +
A new workstation-based rigorous 3D model for simulation of light scattering by alignment structures is introduced. The model extends a successful 2D lithography model, and has been applied to the simulation of periodic 3D alignment marks on a resist covered silicon substrate. The theory behind the new model is presented, and examples are given of the model's results and computational efficiency.
