Power Spectral Density Functions for Si Wafer Surfaces Using Six Measurement Techniques
Egon Marx, I J. Malik, T Bristow, N Poduje, J C. Stover
Power spectral densities (PSDs) were used to characterize a set of surfaces over a wide range of lateral as well as perpendicular dimensions. Twelve 200-mm-diameter Si wafers were prepared and the surface finishes ranged from as-ground wafers to epitaxial wafers. The wafer surfaces were then measured with different methods: atomic force microscopy, angle-resolved light scatter, interferometric microscopy, optical profiling, stylus profiling, and capacitance-based wafer thickness gaging. The data were converted into one-dimensional PSDs and the curves were plotted as functions of spatial frequencies, comparing results for different samples or for different instruments.
