Visualization of doped active regions in semiconductor devices
The possibility of consistent and efficient inspection throughout the entire manufacturing process of semiconductor devices is one of the key attributes for high yields and profitability. Feedback on control of each manufacturing step is absolutely necessary, especially during the mass production of wafers (tens of millions of devices per week). Checking layer thicknesses, step coverage, geometry of critical details, depth of trenches, etc. is carried out in order to find defects, their origin and implement appropriate corrective measures.
