  • Publication number: 20190230249
    Abstract: A method for compensating for printing substrate deformation in a multicolor duplex printing operation by way of a computer. The substrate deformation that arises when individual color separations are printed onto the first and second sides of the printing substrate in the printing units is established and compensated for in the course of an automated register correction process. The computer calculates a forecast of the substrate deformation on a basis of the established first side deformation parameters of the printing substrate. When further color separations are printed onto the second side the forecast is used as an input parameter for a compensation of the substrate deformation of the second side.

  • Publication number: 20190137892
    Abstract: Measurements are obtained from locations across a substrate before or after performing a lithographic process step. Examples of such measurements include alignment measurements made prior to applying a pattern to the substrate, and measurements of a performance parameter such as overlay, after a pattern has been applied. A set of measurement locations is selected from among all possible measurement locations. At least a subset of the selected measurement locations are selected dynamically, in response to measurements obtained using a preliminary selection of measurement locations. Preliminary measurements of height can be used to select measurement locations for alignment. In another aspect, outlier measurements are detected based on supplementary data such as height measurements or historic data.

  • Publication number: 20190094713
    Abstract: A lithographic apparatus is a machine that applies a desired pattern onto a substrate, usually onto a target portion of the substrate. A functional relationship between local height deviations across a substrate and focus information, such as a determined focus amount, is determined for a substrate, e.g., a reference substrate. Height deviations are subsequently measured for another substrate, e.g. a production substrate. The height deviations for the subsequent substrate and the functional relationship are used to determine predicted focus information for the subsequent substrate. The predicted focus information is then used to control the lithographic apparatus to apply a product pattern to the product substrate.

  • Publication number: 20190064680
    Abstract: Corrections are calculated for use in controlling a lithographic apparatus. Using a metrology apparatus a performance parameter is measured at sampling locations across one or more substrates to which a lithographic process has previously been applied. A process model is fitted to the measured performance parameter, and an up-sampled estimate is provided for process-induced effects across the substrate. Corrections are calculated for use in controlling the lithographic apparatus, using an actuation model and based at least in part on the fitted process model. For locations where measurement data is available, this is added to the estimate to replace the process model values. Thus, calculation of actuation corrections is based on a modified estimate which is a combination of values estimated by the process model and partly on real measurement data.

  • Publication number: 20190025394
    Abstract: A magnetic resonance system is operated in a preliminary examination so as to acquire magnetic resonance data while an object undergoing investigation is in a first position relative to the scanner of the magnetic resonance system. Using the first magnetic resonance data, or image data derived therefrom, a processor reconstructs an image of the object. The image has a distortion in relation to the object. The processor presents the image to a person operating the system at a display device. The processor reconstructs the image such that the distortion is determined by a target position that is independent of the position of the object.

  • Patent number: 10078273
    Abstract: A lithographic apparatus applies a pattern onto a substrate using an optical projection system. The apparatus includes an optical level sensor and an associated processor for obtaining a height map of the substrate surface prior to applying the pattern. A controller uses the height map to control focusing with respect to the projection system when applying the pattern. The processor is further arranged to use information relating to processing previously applied to the substrate to define at least first and second regions of the substrate and to vary the manner in which the measurement signals are used to control the focusing, between the first and second regions. For example, an algorithm to calculate height values from optical measurement signals can be varied according to differences in known structure and/or materials. Measurements from certain regions can be selectively excluded from calculation of the height map and/or from use in the focusing.

  • Publication number: 20180173118
    Abstract: A first substrate (2002) has a calibration pattern applied to a first plurality of fields (2004) by a lithographic apparatus. Further substrates (2006, 2010) have calibration patterns applied to further pluralities of fields (2008, 2012). The different pluralities of fields have different sizes and/or shapes and/or positions. Calibration measurements are performed on the patterned substrates (2002, 2006, 2010) and used to obtain corrections for use in controlling the apparatus when applying product patterns to subsequent substrates. Measurement data representing the performance of the apparatus on fields of two or more different dimensions (2004, 2008, 2012) is gathered together in a database (2013) and used to synthesize the information needed to calibrate the apparatus for a new size. Calibration data is also obtained for different scan and step directions.
