18 March 2015 Solution for high-order distortion on extreme illumination condition using computational prediction method

In this paper we present the limitations of 3rd order distortion corrections based on standard overlay metrology and propose a new method to quantify and correct the cold-lens aberration fingerprint. As a result of continuous shrinking features of the integrated circuit, the overlay budget requirements have become very demanding. Historically, most overlay enhancements were achieved by hardware improvements. However there also is a benefit in the computational approach, and so we looked for solutions for overlay improvements in process variation with computational applications.
