26 June 2003 Comparison of vector theories for aerial image calculation
Author Affiliations +
In simulation of optical lithography it is well known that for high-NA the coupling between the vector components of the electromagnetic wave cannot be ignored and a vector diffraction theory should be employed to calculate aerial images. Commercial programs produce the same aerial image for scalar diffraction theory. When vector models are selected, they give the consistent images in latest versions. However formula of vector models give the different mathematical formula. To understand the origin of the difference, we compared the vector models adopted by Refs.
