We report exceptionally good repeatability in non-contact Frequency Space Moire (FSM) Fiber Optic Wafer Thickness Metrology. The FSM method, which is a frequency domain interferometry technique, takes advantage of the low frequency beat-like pattern observed by grating spectrograph in the recorded spectra of the light reflected from the thick samples, and subsequently filtered through the well characterized etalon. In this paper we focus on semiconductor application of the FSM method. The FSM experimentally achieved static repeatability of 0.35 nm for the measurement of thickness of the nominally 508 um thick blanket silicon wafer, which is about 1 part per million, for the acquisition time of 10 ms.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
