Scanner induced pattern shifts between layers are a large contributor to DRAM Bitline to Active overlay. One of the main root causes for this Pattern Shift non-Uniformity are lens aberrations. Currently measuring the Bitline to Active overlay requires a decap CDSEM method<sup>1</sup>. In this paper, an in-resist pattern shift uniformity metrology method is proposed which quantifies the main DRAM Bitline to Active overlay without the necessity to decap. We have designed a high transmission reticle (≥ 60%) to measure the pattern shift non-uniformity between two dense gratings under the rotation angle of the Active layer in both cold and hot lens states. Each module on the reticle contains product-like features and a variety of metrology targets, i.e. alignment and overlay, such that the product-to-product and the productto- metrology pattern shift fingerprints can be measured. OPC is applied to enlarge the overlapping process windows of the metrology targets with respect to the product-like features.
