Abstract
Different models for model-based Optical Proximity Correction have been recently developed for improving the printability of IC designs. Each model has its own area of application and it can be verified by experiments or by using a calibrated photoresist simulator that can predict 3D shapes with enough accuracy and acceptable performance. In this work we describe the use of 3D photoresist simulation for exposure, post-exposure bake and development on planar substrates to study the characteristics of different models for model-based OPC. We also introduce a new OPC tool that it is based on an automated procedure for layout modification and fast 3D simulation of exposure, PEB and development.
