3 October 2018 Non‐Gaussian CD distribution characterization for DRAM application in EUV lithography
Author Affiliations +
We evaluate through simulations and experimental data the impact of process non-idealities with a particular attention to mask CD uniformity for 44 nm pitch DRAM contact hole array. Several millions of contact holes are simulated with PROLITH after full-physical stochastic process calibration. Process Windows, LCDU and failure rates are compared at nominal conditions, assuming no variation in process parameters vs. the stochastic process variation obtained by inclusion of perturbations of process parameters. The simulations are repeated including Gaussian distributed mask CD variations. Skewness, kurtosis, and failure rates are calculated..
