There are many steps in semiconductor fabrication, requiring highly specialized tools for each process. JEOL produces both front-end and back-end solutions for advanced semiconductor research and manufacturing. From initial writing of sub-micron and nanometric patterns onto masks, reticles, or wafers…to high precision cross-sectional samples of processed wafers and imaging these microscopic slices…to rapid analysis of particles and defects on the wafer surface or edge…JEOL offers several tools to aid research and manage yield. We produce e-beam lithography systems and FE-SEMs used to write high precision masks, reticles, and wafers…FIB/SEM solutions for high throughput, cross-section imaging…and defect review tools designed for rapid inspection. JEOL offers leading-edge solutions for 200/300mm, nano-fabrication processes and research -- backed by award-winning 24/7 service support and long-term commitment to our customers.
