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 »
