Session 13Contamination Free Manufacturing

Chairs: Jennifer Braggin, Entegris; Christopher Ebert, Linde; Christopher Long, IBM Research

Contamination in the form of particulates, surface impurities and volatile organic compounds can have a significant impact on semiconductor wafer fab yield and reliability. This session will feature papers focused on tool and process improvement to reduce overall on wafer contamination in order to eliminate killer defects, drive yield improvement and minimize yield excursions.
