Optical measurement of opening dimensions in a wafer

A method of generating 3d information of a sample using an optical microscope includes: varying the distance between the sample and an objective lens of the optical microscope at pre-determined steps, capturing an image at each pre-determined step, determining a characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image, determining a first captured image that is focused on a first surface of the sample based on the characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image, and determining a measurement of an opening in the first surface of the sample based on the first captured image. The first surface of the sample and the second surface of the sample are within a field of view of each of the captured images. ... Zeta Instruments Inc

Optical measurement of bump hieght

A method of generating 3d information including: varying the distance between the sample and an objective lens of the optical microscope at pre-determined steps; capturing an image at each pre-determined step; determining a characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image; determining, for each captured image, the greatest characteristic value across a first portion of pixels in the captured image; comparing the greatest characteristic value for each captured image to determine if a surface of the sample is present at each pre-determined step; determining a first captured image that is focused on an apex of a bump of the sample; determining a second captured image that is focused on a first surface of the sample based on the characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image; and determining a first distance between the apex of the bump and the first surface.. . ...

Optical measurement of step size and plated metal thickness

A method of generating 3d information includes: varying the distance between the sample and an objective lens of the optical microscope at pre-determined steps, capturing an image at each pre-determined step; determining a characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image; determining, for each captured image, the greatest characteristic value across all pixels in the captured image; comparing the greatest characteristic value for each captured image to determine if a surface of the sample is present at each pre-determined step; determining a first captured image that is focused on a first surface of the sample based on the characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image; determining a second captured image that is focused on a second surface of the sample based on the characteristic value of each pixel in each captured image; and determining a first distance between the first surface and the second surface.. . ...

Automated 3-d measurement

A method of generating 3d information of a sample using an optical microscope includes: varying the distance between the sample and an objective lens of the optical microscope at predetermined steps, capturing an image at each predetermined step. In one example, the method further includes: determining a characteristic of each pixel in each captured image; determining, for each captured image, the greatest characteristic across all pixels in the captured image; and comparing the greatest characteristic for each captured image to determine if a surface of the sample is present at each step. ...

Dual mode inspector

A dual mode inspector includes an optical inspector configured to detect a defect located at a first location on a sample, a microscope configured to capture an image of the defect at the first location on the sample, and a platform that is configured to support the sample. The sample is not removed from the platform between the detecting of the defect located at the first location on the sample and the capturing of the image of the defect at the first location on the sample. ... Zeta Instruments Inc

Multi-surface specular reflection inspector

An optical inspector includes a time varying beam reflector, a radiating source that irradiates the time varying beam reflector, a telecentric scan lens configured to direct the radiation reflected by the time varying beam reflector onto a first surface of a transparent sample, a first detector that receives at least a portion of top surface specular reflection, a second detector that receives at least a portion of the bottom surface specular reflection. A turning mirror may also be included. ... Zeta Instruments Inc

Method of detecting defect location using multi-surface specular reflection

A method for detecting defects includes directing a scanning beam to a location on a surface of a transparent sample, measuring top and bottom surface specular reflection intensity, and storing coordinate values of the first location and the top and bottom surface specular reflection intensity in a memory. The method may further include comparing the top surface specular reflection intensity measured at each location with a first threshold value, comparing the bottom surface specular reflection intensity measured at each location with a second threshold value, and determining if a defect is present at each location and on which surface the defect is present. ... Zeta Instruments Inc

Method and apparatus to detect defects in transparent solids

A method and apparatus to measure specular reflection intensity, specular reflection angle, near specular scattered radiation, and large angle scattered radiation and determine the location and type of defect present in a first and a second transparent solid that have abutting surfaces. The types of defects include a top surface particle, an interface particle, a bottom surface particle, an interface bubble, a top surface pit, and a stain. ... Zeta Instruments Inc
