Scatterometry measurement for SiGe AEI sigma-shaped gate structures of 28nm technology

Novel process control methodologies are required for SiGe gate recess structures that are used in IC manufacturing to enhance device performance. Metrology measurements of 28nm SiGe after-etch inspection U-sigma shaped and V-sigma shaped gate structures must be able to track subtle variations for several critical parameters, including SiGe-to-gate width… CONTINUE READING
