921. Algorithms for Scanned Probe Microscope Image Simulation, Surface Reconstruction, and Tip Estimation
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Author: John S Villarrubia
Abstract: To the extent that tips are not perfectly sharp, images produced by scanned probe microscopies (SPM) such as atomic force microscopy and scanning tunneling microscopy are only approximations of the specimen surface. Tip-induced distortions are signif ...

922. Conference Report: Workshop on Advanced Methods and Models for Appearance of Coatings and Coated Objects, Gaithersburg, MD, May 20, 1996
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Authors: M E. McKnight, J Martin, Michael A Galler, Fern Y Hunt, R Lipman, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, A Thompson
Abstract: To help NIST researchers better understand industry''s needs, four NIST laboratories held a Workshop on Advanced Methods and Models for Appearance of Coatings and Coated Objects on May 20, 1996. The four NIST laboratories are Building and Fire Resear ...

923. Dimensional Metrology at the Nanometer Level: Combined SEM and PPM
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Authors: Michael T Postek, H Ho, L Harrison
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is currently exploring the potentials afforded by the incorporation of a commercial proximal probe microscope (PPM) operating in the scanning tunneling or atomic force mode into a high resolut ...

924. Fourier Transform Feedback for Scanning Electron Microscopes Used in Semiconductor Metrology
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar, M P Davidson
Abstract: The utility of the sharpness concept for use on metrology scanning electron microscopes (SEM) as implemented through the Fourier transform technique has been clearly demonstrated and documented. The original methods for sharpness analysis were labor- ...

925. Practical Aspects of Touch Trigger Probe Error Compensation
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Authors: William Tyler Estler, Steven David Phillips, Bruce R. Borchardt, Ted Hopp, M Levenson, K Eberhardt, Marjorie A McClain
Abstract: We present extensions of our prior work in modeling and correcting for pretravel variation errors in kinematic seat touch-trigger coordinate measuring machine (CMM) probes with straight styli. A simple correction term is shown to account for a range ...

926. Statistical Measure for the Sharpness of the SEM Image
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Authors: Nien F Zhang, Michael T Postek, Robert D. Larrabee
Abstract: Fully automated or semi-automated scanning electron microscopes (SEM) are now commonly used in semiconductor production and other forms of manufacturing. Testing and proving that the instrument is performing at a satisfactory level of sharpness is an ...

927. Workshop on Advanced Methods and Models for Appearance of Coatings and Coated Objects
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 7/1/1997
Authors: A Thompson, Theodore Vincent Vorburger, J Martin, M E. McKnight, Michael A Galler, R Lipman, Fern Y Hunt
Abstract: This is a conference report on the Workshop on Advanced Methods and Models for Appearance of Coatings and Coated Objects held at Gaithersburg, MD, May 20, 1996.

928. Inexpensive Digital Imaging?
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 6/1/1997
Authors: Michael T Postek, Andras Vladar
Abstract: The capture of digital images through the use of a frame grabber provides tremendous advantages to scanning electron microscopy. Accessory frame grabbers can range in price from very inexpensive to several thousand dollars. This work investigates the ...

929. Glass and Dimensional Metrology
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 4/1/1997
Author: Theodore D Doiron
Abstract: Ordinary glass, even good optical quality glass, will shrink up to 20 micrometers/meter over the first few years after its manufacture. Gages made of glass are therefore not suitable as high accuracy artifacts unless they are calibrated often. Better ...

930. High-Speed Grinding - Fundamentals and State of the Art in Europe, Japan, and the USA
Topic: Manufacturing
Published: 4/1/1997
Authors: F Klocke, E Brinksmeier, Christopher J. Evans, T Howes, I Inasaki, E Minke, H Tonshoff, J A Webster, D Stuff
Abstract: This paper describes the technological basis and the current state of the art in the field of high speed grinding. The technological fundamentals of high speed grinding are first of all presented on the basis of the kinematics of the chip-forming pr ...
