Measuring 3D Sidewall Topography & LER for Photoresist Patterns Using Tip-Tilting AFM Technology

A new technical paper titled “Enhancing the precision of 3D sidewall measurements of photoresist using atomic force microscopy with a tip-tilting technique” by researchers at National Metrology Institute of Japan (NMIJ) and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). “We have developed a technique for measuring the sidewall of the resist pattern using atomic force microscopy (AFM) that

Looking Forward To SPIE, And Beyond

On the eve of this year’s SPIE Advanced Lithography + Patterning conference, I took a look at the IEEE Devices and Systems Roadmap’s lithography section. It’s especially notable for the emergence of EUV lithography, which has quickly become critical for advanced logic. High-NA tools to support still smaller dimensions are on the horizon. In the near-term, though, the key challenge
