Semiconductor devices are becoming more complex due to the demand for faster speeds, shorter time-to-yield, and time-to-market. Scanning transmission electron microscopy (S)TEM metrology has become a necessary element of all leading-edge wafer fabrication workflows, since highly specific measurements are needed to generate statistically relevant data with sub-angstrom accuracy. This data allows manufacturers to calibrate toolsets, diagnose failure mechanisms, and optimize overall process yield.
Thermo Fisher Scientific offers metrology workflows that are flexible enough to enable manual, semi-automated, or even fully automated solutions, depending on your needs. The Thermo Scientific Metrios AX System is the first TEM designed to provide the fast, precise measurements that semiconductor manufacturers need to develop and control their wafer fabrication processes.
