Theta 300 provides the perfect solution for characterizing thin films on tomorrows semiconductor devices. Its unique, non-destructive, technology provides dose, distribution, layer thickness, purity, uniformity and composition measurements from any point on the wafer. Not only will it measure elemental compositions but it will also provide chemical state information. It detects the presence, nature and thickness of buried interface layers. Theta 300 measures contaminants in the layer, at the surface and at the interfaces. Theta 300 is ideally suited to the metrology of gate dielectrics, including oxynitrides and newer materials such as hafnium oxide. Theta 300 accommodates wafers up to 300mm and thicker specimens, such as packaged devices. It provides metrology, QC and R&D facilities with a powerful new tool to accelerate the development of tomorrow’s semiconductor devices. Theta 300 can also be configured with an additional, side-mounted transfer chamber for FOUP, cassette, or clean-room applications. Click here for the application form for a copy of the Theta 300 interactive presentation CD.

A new in-situ etch and regrowth process for uncooled InP buried-heterostructure lasers with claimed 50% lower rates of burn-in degradation is to be introduced by Bookham Technology at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition (OFC) this month (March 2003). The burn-in improvement promises increasing long-term reliability of devices, which also exhibit 20% lower threshold currents. The new process is also compatible with newer aluminium gallium indium arsenide (AlGaInAs) materials.

Design tool company Synopsys completed its acquisition of Numerical Technologies, a provider of subwavelength lithography enabling technology. Synopsys acquired 90.71 percent of the outstanding shares of Numerical common stock for a purchase price of 7.00 dollars per share in cash, without interest, through a tender offer by its wholly owned subsidiary, Neon Acquisition. As the final step of the acquisition, Synopsys caused Neon Acquisition to merge with and into Numerical on March 1, 2003. Numerical shares not purchased in the tender offer will be converted into the right to receive the same 7.00 dollars per share in cash, without interest. As a result, Numerical is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Synopsys.
