The semiconductor industry needs metrology systems to characterize the dimensions of transistor structures in the nanometer range in a fast, non-destructive, and metrologically reliable manner. A major challenge here is the limitation of the resolution of the measurement systems by the wavelength of the radiation used. Therefore, the use of short-wavelength extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation is...
