Paper Abstract

The paper describes the new microscope for accurately measuring the three-dimensional surface topography of deep and discontinuous microstructures, which is based on two- wavelength phase-shifting interferometry (PSI) and data analysis. The microscope mainly consists of dual-path interference microscopic optical system, CCD image sampling system, control system and data analysis/processing. The related techniques include five-step PSI technique, the generalized two-wavelength interferometry (TWI) and a new data analysis/processing technique. The depth resolution of the microscope is 0.5 nm, the depth measuring accuracy is better than 1.3 nm. When the 20X microscope objective (NA equals 0.4) is used, the spatial resolution of the microscope is about 0.5 micrometer, the field is about (phi) 1.325 mm.
