Paper Abstract

Makyoh topography is an optical surface defect and flatness characterization tool. Its operation principle is based on the whole-field reflection of a collimated beam and defocused detection. This paper reviews the history, the basic principles and applications of the method. The problem of quantitativity is discussed in detail and the solutions are described. The accuracy limits are discussed. Application examples are shown from semiconductor wafer processing and MEMS technology. Comparison is made to related optical and other topographic techniques.
