Sample Specifications:

100 mm and 150 mm Si wafers

  • Si/SiO2/SixNy
  • Al/W/Ti

Technology Description:

This tool is used for spin coating of a photo resist film on silicon wafers. This is the first step of a photolithography process. The thickness of the film is obtained by the result of the resist specifications (viscosity) and the chuck speed. In order to dry the resist film after spinning,  the wafers can be baked in one of the hotplates available in the tool.
