As the industry pushes to smaller nodes and higher requirements, detecting defects and eliminating their sources is becoming more critical. However, as we push the limits of semiconductor technology nodes, impurities and small variations have a larger impact on material quality and standard specifications and quality systems are not enough. Traditionally the industry approached this this problem mainly through advances in defect detection and classification, but recently there has been a push to reduce defects and excursions through advances in material characterization throughout the supply chain as well. This webinar will cover both topics with KLA presenting on latest advances in defect detection and classification and Brewer Science presenting the concept and implementation of fingerprinting and advanced material characterization of materials used in semiconductor manufacturing.
