    Abstract

    This paper describes a field emission linewidth measuring and inspection instrument. The low-voltage operation, which allows nondestructive measurement of critical dimensions on photoresist with good precision, is described. The effect on photoresist of nonpenetrating electrons in the low-voltage mode versus penetrating electrons in the high-voltage mode is discussed.
