Project can be divided into phases. First phase will be accomplished by using POR chemistry settings.
Main goal of the phase is to check correlations between in situ measurement data coming from spectra reflectometer and ex situ inspection technique, such as xSEM or preferable ETEM.
The former will require data extraction, smoothing of experimental points into periodical curves, subtraction of a background by using eigenvalues coming of Principle Components Analysis (PCA), definition of all extremums etc.
The latter (ex situ inspection) requires an accurate measurement of xSEM or ETEM images.
The second phase could include DOE on pulsing regimes as well as chemistries by taking 2-3 factors, where one of them will be categorical.
