By Michael Quinten

A one-stop, concise consultant on settling on and measuring skinny movie thickness via optical methods.

This sensible ebook covers the legislation of electromagnetic radiation and interplay of sunshine with subject, in addition to the idea and perform of thickness size, and glossy purposes. In so doing, it exhibits the functions and possibilities of optical thickness decision and discusses the strengths and weaknesses of size units besides their overview methods.

Following an advent to the subject, bankruptcy 2 provides the fundamentals of the propagation of sunshine and different electromagnetic radiation in area and topic. the most subject of this publication, the selection of the thickness of a layer in a layer stack via measuring the spectral reflectance or transmittance, is handled within the following 3 chapters. the colour of skinny layers is mentioned in bankruptcy 6. ultimately, in bankruptcy 7, the writer discusses numerous commercial functions of the layer thickness dimension, together with high-reflection and anti-reflection coatings, photolithographic structuring of semiconductors, silicon on insulator, obvious conductive movies, oxides and polymers, skinny movie photovoltaics, and seriously doped silicon.

Aimed at business and educational researchers, engineers, builders and brands concerned with all parts of optical layer and skinny optical movie dimension and metrology, method keep an eye on, real-time tracking, and applications.

Example text

In contrast, in an amorphous semiconductor the absorption spectrum reaches into the gap region. The reason is that the electronic states in the valence band and conduction band can be divided into localized states and states that are randomly distributed through these amorphous semiconductors. While the distribution of localized states follow a square root functional dependence in the band region, the distribution of randomly distributed states shows an exponential functional dependence in the tail region.

Another colored metal is copper where also the dielectric function (not shown here) is determined by a Drude term of the free electrons and the contribution of interband transitions from the 3d electrons to the hybridized 4sp band. The band edge is shifted still further into the visible spectral range (580 nm) for the color of a copper mirror is red. 2 Kramers–Kronig Analysis of Dielectric Functions The real and imaginary part of the dielectric function are related to each other by the Kramers–Kronig relations [40, 41], sometimes called dispersion integrals.

The plasma frequency is proportional to the momentum transition matrix element. Note that in the original paper, the formula is expressed in terms of photon energies. 2). 21. 5 eV. 22 Density of states N(E) in the model of O’ Leary, Johnson, and Lim [35] for an amorphous semiconductor. Another model for the dielectric function of amorphous semiconductor materials stems from O’ Leary, Johnson, and Lim [35] and is well known as OJL model. In a defect-free crystalline semiconductor, the absorption spectrum terminates abruptly at the energy gap.
