A robust pixel-based RET optimization algorithm independent of initial conditions

Abstract

A robust pixel-based optimization algorithm is proposed for mask synthesis of inverse lithography technology (ILT) to improve the resolution and pattern fidelity in optical lithography. Result shows that the final image fidelity is almost independent of the initial condition. To demonstrate the robustness of the algorithm, six typical desired mask patterns… (More)
