In this work we apply a new laser scanning apparatus in multiple ways to measure various aspects of in-process and final silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafers in high volume manufacturing (HVM). The laser scanner enables high-spatialresolution whole-wafer metrology of topographic features, film thickness variation, and two scattering channels, while bridging between 200 mm and 300 mm diameters on a single platform.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
