Riber Soft

Product introduction

Monitor your thin film deposition and vacuum treatment process in real-time with Riber Magnification Inferred Curvature (MIC) tool

Main benefits

  • In situ stress, bow and curvature measurement, in real time
  • Set precise growth patterns and monitor deviations
  • Detect specific growth events and retrieve fundamental knowledge about growth mechanisms
  • Suitable for various thin films deposition techniques (CVD, MBE, PVD,…) and vacuum treatment process (plasma etching, annealing, quenching …)
  • Unrivalled curvature sensitivity
  • Simultaneous spherical and cylindrical bowing, anisotropy measurement
  • Compatible with low lattice mismatch systems like AlGaAs/GaAs
  • Thick wafer compatible -up to few mm
  • Highly stable & alignment-free measurement
  • Wide-range wavelength source – immune to reflectivity change, no need to adjust exposure time
  • Immunity to wafer flatness – possible use with patterned wafer
