7 July 1997 Effect of processing on the overlay performance of a wafer stepper
Author Affiliations +
The effects of resist spinning, aluminum sputtering and chemical mechanical polishing on the observed alignment position in ASML wafer steppers are presented. Vector maps of the process induced alignment shifts are shown for various processing conditions. The deposition experiments are compared with simulations and a specially designed alignment system modeling program.
