Paper Abstract

IR laser light scattering phenomena allows to visualize inhomogeneities in the bulk semiconductor materials. A device for observation of IR scattering in semiconductor wafers - the laser scanning tomograph (LST) - was designed and manufactured in the Institute of Applied Optics. A sample is illuminated by the diode pumped Nd:YAG laser, emitting the IR laser light in TEMoo mode. The laser beam diameter inside the semiconductor samples does not exceed 50 micrometers . The scattering centers inside the sample are observed perpendicularly to the direction of illuminating beam, using microscope with an IR CCD camera. To obtain a 2D image of scanned plane, the sample is moved horizontally by a scanning stage. The system has also a moving stage that allows to move the sample vertically. This enables the sample investigation in the third direction. The LST is controlled by a PC computer equipped with a user friendly software. The measurements results of GaAs wafers are presented.
