In: Microelectronic Engineering, 1995, vol. 27, no. 1-4, p. 543-546

We investigated two optical methods for characterizing submicron structures. Average errors of a few nanometers can be determined by the far-field diffraction metrology utilizing diffractive structures having enhanced sensitivity to fabrication errors. The scanning spot metrology is well suited for analyzing lithographic masks. Plus
