Paper Abstract

Photo-resist dispensers traditionally apply a generous amount of resist on the wafer and then spin the wafer to reach a uniform desired thickness. With this technique, over 95% of expensive and hazardous liquid is wasted. The goal of this project is to reduce the waste by using a drop-on- demand ejection technology to apply the photo-resist. In practice, a controller turns out to be necessary to compensate for the variability of the performance of the ejectors, to insure the stability of the ejection, and to speed up the transient regime for drop-on-demand operation. The paper reports on the design and simulation of this controller.
