8 November 2012 Efficient simulation of EUV multilayer defects with rigorous data base approach
Author Affiliations +
This paper presents the extension of the well-established rigorous electromagnetic field (EMF) solver Waveguide for the efficient and fully rigorous simulation of patterned extreme ultraviolet (EUV) masks with multilayer defects using a rigorously computed multilayer defect data base combined with on demand computed absorber structures. Typical computation times are in the range of seconds up to a few minutes. The new simulation approach will be presented. Selected simulation examples and a defect repair example demonstrate the functionality and the capability to perform fast, highly accurate and flexible EUV multilayer defect computations.
