  • Publication number: 20190251433
    Abstract: A method for adjusting a convolutional neural network includes following operations. The convolutional neural network includes convolution layers in a sequential order. Receptive field widths of the convolution layers in a first model of the convolutional neural network are determined. Channel widths of the convolution layers in the first model are reduced into reduced channel widths according to the receptive field widths of the convolution layers and an input image width. A structure of a second model of the convolutional neural network is formed according to the reduced channel widths. The second model of the convolutional neural network is trained according the structure of the second model.

  • Patent number: 10379448
    Abstract: Target structures such as overlay gratings (Ta and Tb) are formed on a substrate (W) by a lithographic process. The first target is illuminated with a spot of first radiation (456a, Sa) and simultaneously the second target is illuminated with a spot of second radiation (456b, Sb). A sensor (418) detects at different locations, portions (460x?, 460x+) of said first radiation that have been diffracted in a first direction by features of the first target and portions (460y?, 460y+) of said second radiation that have been diffracted in a second direction by features of the second target. Asymmetry in X and Y directions can be detected simultaneously, reducing the time required for overlay measurements in X and Y. The two spots of radiation at soft x-ray wavelength can be generated simply by exciting two locations (710a, 710b) in a higher harmonic generation (HHG) radiation source or inverse Compton scattering source.
