High-resolution X-ray Diffraction

    High-resolution X-ray diffraction (HRXRD) is a powerful technique used for research and manufacturing of semiconductors. It has several advantages such as assessing crystal quality, analyzing layer thickness and composition, evaluating interface quality, analyzing strain, optimizing processes, detecting and analyzing defects, developing advanced materials, and quality control in manufacturing. HRXRD plays a vital role in advancing semiconductor technology.
