The Prometrix SpectraMap is a spectrophotometer. The basic operating principle is that the intensity of monochromatic reflected light depends strongly on film thickness because of interference.
- Model SM300
- The film thicknesses are comparable to the wavelength of the incident light.
- The machine uses a computer-controlled grating monochromator and a photomultiplier tube detector to measure the reflected optical spectrum over the 350 to 800 nm wavelength band) from a bare silicon reference wafer and from the wafer under test.
- Given an index of refraction for a thin film and the two measured spectrums, the computer will analyze the interference pattern to determine film thickness.
