Effective solution for the 14nm node multiple patterning lithography

Abstract

As we approach the advanced technology nodes, Multiple Patterning Lithography (MPL) helps achieve scaling down but still encounters a big challenge of lithographic performance because of the various pitches and orientations of features in 14nm logic design. The dose center shift issue is analyzed and solved in the Source Mask Optimization (SMO) stage in… (More)
