81. Critical Dimension Calibration Standards for ULSI Metrology
Published: 9/30/2003
Authors: Richard A Allen, Michael W. Cresswell, Christine E. Murabito, Ronald G Dixson, E. Hal Bogardus
Abstract: NIST and International SEMATECH are developing single-crystal reference materials for use in evaluating and calibrating critical dimension (CD), that is linewidth, metrology tools. Primary calibration of these reference materials uses a high-resoluti ...

82. Toward Traceability for At-line AFM Dimensional Metrology
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: Marylyn H. Bennett, Angela Guerry, Ronald G Dixson, Michael T Postek, Theodore Vincent Vorburger
Abstract: The in-line and at-line measurement tools for critical dimension (CD) metrology in semiconductor manufacturing are technologically advanced instruments that exhibit excellent measurement repeatability - below one nanometer in some cases. Accuracy, ho ...

83. Electron Beam Metrology of 193 nm Resists at Ultra Low Voltage
Published: 5/1/2003
Authors: N. Sullivan, Ronald G Dixson, B Bunday, M Mastovich, P Knutruda, P Fabre, R Brandoma
Abstract: Resist slimming under electron beam exposure introduces significant measurement uncertainty in the metrology of 193 nm resists. Total critical dimension (CD) uncertainty of up to 10 nm can arise from line slimming through a combination of the line sl ...

84. Implementation of a Reference Measurement System Using CD-AFM
Published: 5/1/2003
Authors: Ronald G Dixson, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Angela Guerry, Marylyn H. Bennett, B Bunday
Abstract: International SEMATECH (ISMT) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) are working together to improve the traceability of atomic force microscope (AFM) dimensional metrology in semiconductor manufacturing. The rapid pace of tech ...

85. Characterizing CDSEM Metrology of 193 nm Resists at Ultra Low Voltage
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: N. Sullivan, M Mastovich, Ronald G Dixson, P Knutruda, B Bunday, P Febrea, R Brandoma
Abstract: Resist slimming under electron beam exposure introduces significant measurement uncertainty in the metrology of 193 nm resists.  Total uncertainties, which approach 10 nm, can be realized through the combination of across wafer variation of line ...

86. Toward Traceability for At Line AFM Dimensional Metrology
Published: 1/1/2002
Authors: Ronald G Dixson, Angela Guerry, Marylyn H. Bennett, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, Michael T Postek
Abstract: The in-line and at-line measurement tools for critical dimension (CD) metrology in semiconductor manufacturing are technologically advanced instruments that exhibit excellent measurement repeatability--below 1 nm in some cases. Accuracy, however, is ...

88. Silicon Single Atom Steps as AFM Height Standards
Published: 8/1/2001
Authors: Ronald G Dixson, Ndubuisi George Orji, Joseph Fu, V W. Tsai, E. C. Williams, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, H Edwards, D Cook, P West, R Nyffenegger
Abstract: Atomic force microscopes (AFMs) are used in the semiconductor industry for a variety of metrology purposes. Step height measurements at the nanometer level and roughness measurements at sub-nanometer levels are often of interest. To perform accurate ...
