Abstract
The halftone phase-shift mask (HtPSM) has been in practical use for i-line and KrF lithography. In ArF lithography, the HtPSM is also considered to be a promising resolution enhancement technique for its simple structure and fabrication process required. We in HOYA have attempted to expand the applicability of our MoSi-based HtPSM blank technology to ArF lithography, helping extend the life of the existing infrastructure for conventional HtPSM fabrication. We have completed tuning our new MoSi-based film for ArF application. The film’s optical properties, chemical durability and ArF laser irradiation durability meet industry requirements; and it is compatible with conventional mask-making processes and repair techniques for the KrF HtPSM.
