The impact of line-edge (LER) and line-width roughness (LWR) on the measured diffraction patters in extreme ultraviolet (EUV) scatterometry has been investigated in recent publications. Two-dimensional rigorous numerical simulations were carried out to model roughness. Simple analytical expressions for the bias in the mean efficiencies stemming from LER and LWR were obtained. Applying a similar approach for DUV scatterometry to investigate the impact of line roughness we obtain comparable results.
