In this paper, we have studied on the effects of annular and quadrupole illuminations by changing their conditions for enhancing the pattern resolution and depth of focus (OaF) in the optical lithography system using KrF Eximer laser 0.248$\mu$m and 0.65 NA. As a result, it is revealed that each illumination condition to optimize the resolution and the OaF for the mask containing the assistance pattern is different under the annular illumination. And in case of quadrupole illumination, we could ascertain that the resolution and the OaF would be enhanced through changing the arrangement of each pole from the conventional X type (45 degrees) to some proper type according to the main pattern direction. ction.
