Abstract / Hauptanspruch
|Methods and systems for performing spectroscopic reflectometry measurements of semiconductor structures at infrared wavelengths are presented herein. In some embodiments measurement wavelengths spanning a range from 750 nanometers to 2,600 nanometers, or greater, are employed. In one aspect, reflectometry measurements are performed at oblique angles to reduce the influence of backside reflections on measurement results. In another aspect, a broad range of infrared wavelengths are detected by a detector that includes multiple photosensitive areas having different sensitivity characteristics. Collected light is linearly dispersed across the surface of the detector according to wavelength. Each different photosensitive area is arranged on the detector to sense a different range of incident wavelengths. In this manner, a broad range of wavelengths are detected with high signal to noise ratio by a single detector.|
