Paper Abstract

We report on the use of optical low coherence reflectometry for silicon characterization. The measurement system uses a low coherence light source (edge-emitting LED) in conjunction with a fiber optic Michelson interferometer. This non-contact fiber optic measurement system has been used to measure silicon thickness and flatness to an accuracy of +/- 1.5 micrometers in the laboratory.
