Paper Abstract

An ac surface photovoltage, which is excited by a chopped photon beam in a semiconductor, is successfully applied for nondestructive detection of metallic contaminants on silicon wafer surfaces. In this report, the charge-induced phenomena at Si wafer surfaces due to various impurities and the mechanism are summarized. Metal (trivalent Al and Fe)- induced negative charges have been proposed at the top region of thermal oxide on the basis of the generally accepted oxide charge model.
