Contents Introduction -- Theory of Perturbation of the Reflectance -- Theory of Perturbation of the Refractive Index -- Theory of Carrier and Heat Transport in Homogeneously Doped Silicon -- Extension of the Transport Theory to Ultra-Shallow Doped Silicon Layers -- Assessment of the Model -- Application of the Model to Carrier Profiling -- Conclusions and Recommendations
Summary One of the critical issues in semiconductor technology is the precise electrical characterization of ultra-shallow junctions. Among the plethora of measurement techniques, the optical reflectance approach developed in this work is the sole concept that does not require physical contact, making it suitable for non-invasive in-line metrology. This work develops extensively all the fundamental physical models of the photomodulated optical reflectance technique and introduces novel approaches that extend its applicability from dose monitoring towards detailed carrier profile reconstruction. It represents a significant breakthrough in junction metrology with potential for industrial implementation
