ASMC 2018 Session 4

The 29th Annual SEMI Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing Conference (ASMC 2018)    

Tuesday, May 1, 2018

Session 4  - Advanced Metrology I (sponsored by Nova Measuring Instruments)
Chairs: Delphine LeCunff, STMicroelectronics; Franz Heider, Infineon; Ido Holcman, Applied Materials; Matt Sendelbach, Nova Measuring Instruments
This session is focused on advanced metrology methods that are not traditional "workhorse" metrology techniques, but are growing in importance for the semiconductor industry.  The 
topics relate to X-ray metrology, both XPS and XRD, as well as optical and ultrasonic techniques.  Applications include FEOL and MOL semiconductor devices as well as RF MEMS.
