Quantitative Optical Inspection of Mirror-Like Wafer Surfaces

Quantitative Optical Inspection of Mirror-Like Wafer Surfaces A conceptual framework for the quantitative optical inspection of mirror-like wafer surfaces is presented. Methods for the computer-aided analysis of surface defects on the basis of optical topographs are described. Defect imaging by optical topography is addressed.

Abstract

A conceptual framework for the quantitative optical inspection of mirror-like wafer surfaces is presented. Methods for the computer-aided analysis of surface defects on the basis of optical topographs are described. Defect imaging by optical topography is addressed. Relations between geometric parameters of an individual defect and the brightness of its image on the screen are established. Some measures of wafer topographical quality are proposed. The concepts are illustrated in the context of silicon wafers.
