Abstract: Methods for solving Maxwell’s equations are integral part of optical metrology and computational lithography setups. Applications require accurate geometrical resolution, high numerical accuracy and/or low computation times. We present a finite-element based electromagnetic field solver relying on unstructured 3D meshes and adaptive hp-refinement. We apply the method for simulating light scattering off arrays of high aspect-ratio nano-posts and FinFETs. © (2015) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
