MicroWriter ML3 Focus Dose Tests By Leonid Tunik

Leonid Tunik

The following data should help you to find the appropriate parameters to expose your design with MicroWriter.

The entire file contains several charts that describe the effect of major expose parameters: dose (on the x-scale) and focus correction on critical dimensions (CDs) of exposed features on the y-scale. The presented data were collected from the features exposed with the variation of the following parameters:

The applied dose varied between 35 to 75 mJ/cm^2

Focus points chosen at autofocus and +/- 0.5 um

 The list of features includes isolated and nested lines and squares, spaces, and circles.  Both direct and inverted image structures were exposed and measured. Titles of the charts correspond to the type and dimension of the designed structure.

S1805 photoresist 0.5um thick on Si was exposed using an x20 lens. 5nm of Cr was deposited for SEM measurements.

S1813 photoresist 1.5um thick on Si was exposed using an x20 lens. 5nm of Cr was deposited for SEM measurements.
