Abstract
This article presents results from an algorithm that can automatically quantify critical dimensions in images from Mask inspection tools with a very high level of accuracy. Using such an algorithm the inspection systems can be run with much tighter settings, resulting in more false defect detections that can then be filtered using the algorithm described here. Such a technique could potentially make the inspection system suitable for inspecting photo-masks beyond its practical limitation.
