21. Nested Uncertainties and Hybrid Metrology to Improve Measurement Accuracy
Published: 4/18/2011
Authors: Richard M Silver, Nien F Zhang, Bryan M Barnes, Hui Zhou, Jing Qin, Ronald G Dixson
Abstract: In this paper we present a method to combine measurement techniques that reduce uncertainties and improve measurement throughput. The approach has immediate utility when performing model-based optical critical dimension measurements. When modeling ...

22. TSOM Method for Semiconductor Metrology
Published: 4/18/2011
Authors: Ravikiran Attota, Ronald G Dixson, John A Kramar, James Edward Potzick, Andras Vladar, Benjamin D. Bunday, Erik Novak, Andrew C. Rudack
Abstract: Through-focus scanning optical microscopy (TSOM) is a new metrology method that achieves 3D nanoscale measurement resolution using conventional optical microscopes; measurement sensitivities are comparable to what is typical using Scatterometry, SEM ...

23. Measurement Traceability and Quality Assurance in a Nanomanufacturing Environment
Published: 3/8/2011
Authors: Ndubuisi George Orji, Ronald G Dixson, Aaron Cordes, Benjamin Bunday, John Allgair
Abstract: A key requirement for nano-manufacturing is maintaining acceptable traceability of measurements performed to determine size. Given that properties and functionality at the nanoscale are governed by absolute size, maintaining the traceability of dimen ...

24. Multi-laboratory Comparison of Traceable Atomic Force Microscope Measurements of 70 nm Grating Pitch
Published: 3/8/2011
Authors: Ronald G Dixson, Donald Chernoff, Shihua Wang, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Siew-Leng Tan, Ndubuisi George Orji, Joseph Fu
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Advanced Surface Microscopy (ASM), and the National Metrology Centre (NMC) of the Agency for Science, Technology, and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore have completed a three-way interlaboratory ...

25. Scanning Probe Microscope Dimensional Metrology at NIST
Published: 12/21/2010
Authors: John A Kramar, Ronald G Dixson, Ndubuisi George Orji
Abstract: Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) dimensional metrology efforts at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology are reviewed. The main SPM instruments for realizing the International System of Units (SI) are the Molecular Measuring Machine, ...

26. Generalized ellipsometry of artificially designed line width roughness
Published: 12/10/2010
Authors: Martin Foldyna, Thomas Avery Germer, Brent Bergner, Ronald G Dixson
Abstract: We use azimuthally-resolved spectroscopic Mueller matrix ellipsometry to study a periodic silicon line structure with and without artificially-generated line width roughness (LWR). We model the artificially perturbed grating using 1D and 2D rigorous ...

27. Nano- and Atom-scale Length Metrology
Published: 10/1/2010
Authors: Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Ronald G Dixson, Ndubuisi George Orji, Joseph Fu, Richard A Allen, Michael W. Cresswell, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: Measurements of length at the nano-scale have increasing importance in manufacturing, especially in the electronics and biomedical industries. The properties of linewidth and step height are critical to the function and specification of semiconducto ...

29. Calibration of 1 nm SiC Step Height Standards
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Albert M. Hilton, Ronald G Dixson, Ndubuisi George Orji, J. A. Powell, A. J. Trunek, P. G. Neudeck, P. B. Abel
Abstract: We aim to develop and calibrate a set of step height standards to meet the range of steps useful for nanotechnology. Of particular interest to this community is the calibration of atomic force microscopes operating at their highest levels of magnifi ...

30. Proximity-associated errors in contour metrology
Published: 3/31/2010
Authors: John S Villarrubia, Ronald G Dixson, Andras Vladar
Abstract: In contour metrology the CD-SEM (critical dimension scanning electron microscope) assigns a continuous boundary to extended features in an image. The boundary is typically assigned as a simple function of the signal intensity, for example by a bright ...
