To determine the magnitude of the exposure latitude required for a process to be manufacturable, additional factors are considered that have a similar relationship between linewidth variation and image log-slope. Such parameters include resist thickness, flare, post-exposure bake temperature, and line-edge roughness. To obtain consistency between theory and experiment it is necessary to use the resist-edge log-slope generalization of image log-slope. Inclusion of these additional factors increases the required exposure latitude five to six times more than would be considered necessary from exposure tool dose control alone.
