TXRF 3760

Wafer Surface Contamination for up to 200 mm Wafers

Measure elemental contamination at discrete points or with full wafer maps

Total reflection X-ray fluorescence (TXRF) analysis can gauge contamination in all fab processes, including cleaning, litho, etch, ashing, films, etc. The TXRF 3760 can measure elements from Na through U with a single-target, 3-beam X-ray system, and a liquid nitrogen-free detector system.

TXRF 3760 Overview

The TXRF 3760 includes Rigaku's patented XYθ sample stage system, an in-vacuum wafer robotic transfer system, and new user-friendly Windows software. These contribute to higher throughput, accuracy and precision, and easy routine operation.

Optional Sweeping TXRF software enables mapping the contaminant distribution over the wafer surface to identify "hot spots" that can be automatically re-measured at higher precision.

Optional ZEE-TXRF capability overcomes the historical 15 mm edge exclusion of original TXRF designs, enabling measurements to be made with zero edge exclusion.

High-reliability wafer surface contamination analysis

TXRF is an indispensable tool for materials and device development for semiconductor manufacturing. Remarkable reliability is achieved thanks to newly developed X-ray optics, a new stage mechanism, and a new concept in compact rotating-anode X-ray sources. Also, a new, low-COO TXRF model offers reduced initial and operating costs.
