Paper Abstract

We have developed a novel technique for performing simple phase-sensitive optical measurements in a sub-micrometer area. We presently use this technique to measure film stacks commonly found in the semiconductor industry. This article explains the theory behind this technique and presents several examples demonstrating the capabilities of the system.
