ASML Stepper 3 - UCSB Test Reticles

From UCSB Nanofab Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Reticle ID: "UCSB-OPC1"

This reticle is always installed in the system, in the "System Reticles" Box #1.

The reticle contains alignment markers for various NanoFab lithography systems, along with resolution test structures and patterns for calibrating optical proximity correction on the system. Some patterns are proprietary to the mask designer, so we can not share the full GDS CAD file.

Resolution Test Charts

The Resolution test charts are repeated all across the reticle, in order to test for lens aberrations. You can have the system expose only a single resolution chart, but since they are placed closely together on the reticle, it's very likely that partial shots of adjacent charts will also be exposed.

In addition, the repeating cells allow us to test for the proper optical proximity correction (OPC) algorithm. The Five Dense_... patterns are for calibrating the OPC algorithm, and are not for user analysis.

Calibration Chart Layout

Cell name is "UCSB_Cal", with coordinates below pointing to center of this cell.

The ""resolution_chart_OPC" version has an optical proximity correction algorithm applied:

Coords for "resolution_chart" Calibration patterns

Image coords for each of the "resolution_chart_ORIG" cells. You can pick just one of these for shooting a resolution test structure. The purpose of the many different locations is to check for variations due to lens aberrations. You could just choose one near the center of the plate to test your process, or you could choose a chart that is in a similar location as the pattern you're shooting on your mask plate.

Note that some portion of the adjacent patterns will likely be exposed as well, due to the patterns not being surrounded by 1mm of chrome. Make sure you set your Cell Size large enough to make sure the bleed-over doesn't overlap with adjacent die.
