Nanometrics Introduces Imaging System For Advanced LED Manufacturing

Nanometrics, a provider of process control metrology and inspection systems, today announced the launch of its latest photoluminescence (PL) system, Imperia, for advanced compound semiconductor manufacturing.

The Imperia is a fully automated non-contact optical system offering comprehensive metrology and inspection for high brightness LED manufacturing applications. The system enables rapid simultaneous PL measurement and defect inspection. With its advanced software capabilities, the Imperia provides critical defect analysis, classification and yield prediction for critical steps in substrate, epitaxial junction formation, and interconnect processes.

"As HB-LED technology continues to evolve with higher brightness, improved power efficiency power and adoption into more demanding end market requirements, manufacturers are increasingly requiring faster information turnaround to ensure optimal throughput and yield," commented David Doyle, vice president of the materials characterisation group at Nanometrics.

 "The Imperia system can quickly determine LED performance long before wafers reach the expensive back end of line processes, enabling HB-LED manufacturers to easily take corrective action for process tuning and contain process excursions early, resulting in lower production costs and shorter cycle times."

Imperia systems were delivered to leading manufacturers in the third and fourth quarter of 2014 and have quickly proven valuable for process control metrology and inspection in advanced devices.

The Imperia system will be introduced at SEMICON Japan 2014 held December 3-5, 2014 at the Tokyo Big Sight, Tokyo, Japan. 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
