This paper reports the measurement results from a set of electrical, on-mask test structures based on industry standard test feature layouts normally used to investigate process proximity effects and improve optical proximity correction (OPC) models. The electrical test structures were fabricated on a binary photomask using the GHOST proximity correction technique to compensate for typical e-beam induced proximity errors. This is one of the first times that electrical test structures have been used to evaluate GHOST exposure. The test structures were measured electrically and optically with a dedicated photomask metrology tool and the results from the two techniques are presented.
