A new test structure, which has a 0.5 μm line-and-space polysilicon pattern with the center aligned on the MOSFET's gate center, is proposed for hot carrier analysis of sub-quarter micron devices. Hot-carrier-induced photoemission effects were measured using a photoemission microscope with a liquid N2 cooled CCD imager. We successfully measured a peak position of photoemission intensity from the center of the MOSFET gate with a spatial resolution sufficiently less than ±24 nm at microscope magnification of 1000×
