Abstract: AbstractThis paper describes the application of a novel optical metrology tool to in-line monitoring of shallow junction processes in a production setting. Recent results demonstrate the sensitivity of junction depth to implant dose and energy, as well as to annealing temperature and time. Results are also presented on monitoring of amorphizing implants and low dose implants. The in-line measurement has been performed on both bare wafers and product wafers. Measurements are compared with results obtained by de…
