Paper Abstract

Here we demonstrate for the first time that terahertz time domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) can be used to distinguish doping profile discrepancies in semiconductor silicon wafers. These proof of concept results suggest the suitability of the technique for in-line process control applications in both IC/photovoltaic (PV) industries. The experimental results show that THz radiation is sensitive to the implant dosage changes in the time domains.
