31. Can We Get 3D CD Metrology Right?
Published: 4/19/2012
Authors: Andras Vladar, John S Villarrubia, Michael T Postek, Petr Cizmar
Abstract: Our world is three-dimensional, so are the integrated circuits (ICs), they have always been. In the past, for a long time, we‰ve been very fortunate, because it was enough to measure the critical dimension (CD), the width of the resist line to keep I ...

32. Contour Metrology using Critical Dimension Atomic Force Microscopy
Published: 4/9/2012
Authors: Ndubuisi George Orji, Ronald G Dixson, Andras Vladar, Bin Ming, Michael T Postek
Abstract: The critical dimension atomic force microscope (CD-AFM), which is used as a reference instrument in lithography metrology, has been proposed as a supplemental instrument for contour measurement and verification. However, although data from CD-AFM is ...

33. Fractional Diffusion, Low Exponent Levy Stable Laws, and Slow Motion Denoising of Helium Ion Microscope Nanoscale Imagery
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 117.006
Published: 2/22/2012
Authors: Andras Vladar, Alfred S Carasso
Abstract: Helium ion microscopes (HIM) are capable of acquiring images with better than 1nm resolution, and HIM images are particularly rich in morphological surface details. However, such images are generally quite noisy. A major challenge is to denoise the ...

34. Strategies for Nanoscale Contour Metrology using Critical Dimension Atomic Force Microscopy
Published: 9/30/2011
Authors: Ndubuisi George Orji, Ronald G Dixson, Andras Vladar, Michael T Postek
Abstract: Contour metrology is one of the techniques used to verify optical proximity correction (OPC) in lithography models. The use of these methods, which are known as resolution enhancement techniques (RET), are necessitated by the continued decrease in f ...

35. Real-Time Image Composition with Correction of Drift Distortion
Published: 9/20/2011
Authors: Petr Cizmar, Andras Vladar, Michael T Postek
Abstract: In this article, a new scanning electron microscopy (SEM) image composition technique is de- scribed, which can significantly reduce drift-distortion related image corruptions. Drift-distortion commonly causes blur and distortions in the SEM ima ...

36. Development of the Metrology and Imaging of Cellulose Nanocrystals
Published: 9/19/2011
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar, John A Dagata, Natalia Farkas, Bin Ming, Ryan Wagner, Arvind Raman, Robert J Moon, Ronald Sabo, Theodore H Wegner, James Beecher
Abstract: The development of metrology for nanoparticles is a significant challenge. Cellulose nanocrystals (CNC) are one group of nanoparticles that have high potential economic value but present substantial challenges to the development of the measurement ...

37. Review of Current Progress in Nanometrology with Helium Ions
Published: 9/19/2011
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar, Bin Ming, Charles Archie
Abstract: Scanning electron microscopy has been employed as an imaging and measurement tool for more than 50 years and it continues as a primary tool in many research and manufacturing facilities across the world. A new challenger to this work is the helium ...

38. Accurate Nanometer-Scale Imaging and Measurements with SEM
Published: 8/18/2011
Authors: Bradley N Damazo, Bin Ming, Premsagar Purushotham Kavuri, Andras Vladar, Michael T Postek
Abstract: Scanning electron microscopes (SEMs) are incredibly versatile instruments for millimeter to nanometer scale imaging and measurements of size and shape. New methods to improve repeatability and accuracy have been implemented on the so-called Referenc ...

39. Modeling for Accurate Dimensional Scanning Electron Microscope Metrology: Then and Now
Published: 7/20/2011
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar
Abstract: A review of the evolution of modeling for accurate dimensional scanning electron microscopy is presented with an emphasis on developments in the Monte Carlo technique for SEM dimensional metrology. The progress of modeling for accurate metrology is d ...

40. Advanced Image Composition with Intra-Frame Drift Correction
Published: 7/19/2011
Authors: Petr Cizmar, Andras Vladar, Michael T Postek
Abstract: Drift Corrected Image Composition (DCIC) is a real-time technique that allows for acquiring significantly more accurate images compare to traditional slow or fast imaging methods.[Ref.] It is especially useful in nanometer-scale imaging and metrolog ...
