Chrome-less Phase Lithography (CPL) was introduced as a potential strong Resolution Enhancement Technology (RET) for 90nm to 65nm node critical layers. One of the important issue with trench type chrome-less mask manufacturing for post structure is quartz defect detection capability. This study will focus on half pitch 80nm (1X) design node and apply different trench sizes and programmed defect sizes. All test patterns will be inspected on KLA-Tencor TeraScan576 inspection tool with both standard Die-to-Die (DD) and TeraPhase DD inspection modes to determine defect detection capability. All programmed defects will also be simulated on the Zeiss AIMS Fab-193 to determine wafer CD error. Finally, we will establish the relationship between trench size, defect detection capability and printability, and summarize the chrome-less mask quartz defect detection capability for 80nm post structure application.
