Optical Thickness and Flatness Measurement of Bonded Silicon Wafer Assemblies

Abstract—The silicon wafer manufacturing process relies heavily on precision polished wafers that have uniform thickness and, depending on the application, also control parallelism to a secondary wafer after bonding. Lumetrics’ low coherence interferometer, commercially marketed as OptiGauge II, is a device capable of measuring the simultaneous wafer thickness, adhesive thickness, and parallelism between surfaces to… Read more »

Custom probe design used in-situ at plastic injection molding facility

Plastic Injection Molding Probe by Lumetrics

A customer approached Lumetrics with a desire to better understand the thickness profile during the molding process of manufacturing a plastic bottle. Due to cycling mechanical machinery within a 24-inch window around the pre-form, a standard probe (with standoff maximum of 2 inches) could not be used while the machine was running. Lumetrics designed a… Read more »
