Title
(EN) A TARGET FOR MEASURING A PARAMETER OF A LITHOGRAPHIC PROCESS
(FR) CIBLE POUR MESURER UN PARAMÈTRE D'UN PROCESSUS LITHOGRAPHIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
A target for determining a performance parameter of a lithographic process, the target comprising a first sub-target formed by at least two overlapping gratings, wherein the underlying grating of the first sub-target has a first pitch and the top lying grating of the first sub-target has a second pitch, at least a second sub-target formed by at least two overlapping gratings, wherein the underlying grating of the second sub-target has a third pitch and the top lying grating of the second sub-target has a fourth pitch.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne une cible servant à déterminer un paramètre de performance d'un processus lithographique, la cible comprenant une première sous-cible formée par au moins deux réseaux se chevauchant, le réseau sous-jacent de la première sous-cible ayant un premier pas et le réseau de diffraction supérieur de la première sous-cible ayant un second pas, et au moins une seconde sous-cible formée par au moins deux réseaux de diffraction se chevauchant, le réseau sous-jacent de la seconde sous-cible ayant un troisième pas et le réseau de diffraction supérieur de la seconde sous-cible ayant un quatrième pas.
