This online course focuses on photolithography and is designed to provide professionals in the semiconductor industry with information on photolithography, the transfer of tiny, complex circuit designs onto the surface of a wafer. This module describes the process of photolithography and its key quality issues.
At the end of this course the learner will be able to identify:
- the purpose of photolithography
- the four basic process steps of photolithography
- the steps of wafer coating
- the types of photoresists
- four types of exposure systems commonly used in the fabrication of integrated circuits
- three types of advanced exposure systems
- the development stage for photolithography
- the inspection stage for photolithography
- important process parameters that are critical to photolithography
- the two major quality issues of photolithography
There are no prerequisites for this course.
