Successfully identifying contaminants is a critical step in ensuring that both product quality and yield are maintained during failure analysis. With ever stricter control standards and the shrinking size of high-tech products, confidently identifying smaller contaminants is becoming increasingly important. While high spatial resolution techniques exist for elemental and inorganic analysis, identification of organic contamination at the micron and submicron scale has been challenging.This webinar will discuss a new breakthrough in Optical Photothermal Infrared (O-PTIR) spectroscopy and its major benefits across a range of defect and failure analysis application areas, including semiconductors, displays, electronics, polymers, and other materials.In this webinar, attendees will learn about:
Analyzing thin and small organic and inorganic contaminants in semicon/high-tech products
Achieving ~40x improvement in submicron spatial resolution compared to traditional FTIR/QCL microscopy
Working in-situ by examining surfaces on arbitrary substrates using a reflective non-contact (far-field) mode, while generating artifact-free, FTIR transmission-like spectra that are readily library searchable
Performing simultaneous IR and Raman (IRaman) spectroscopy to provide complementary IR and Raman information that can be used for more thorough characterization of organic and inorganic contaminants
Dr. Mustafa Kansiz, Director of Product Management at Photothermal Spectroscopy Corp. and Dr. Dennis Walls, Technical Fellow at Dupont will host the webinar, with opportunities to ask questions during and after the webinar.The webinar will be recorded for later on-demand viewing.
The mIRage® IR Microscope is an innovative new system, uniquely providing submicron IR spectroscopy and imaging across a wide variety of applications.

For the characterization of polymers and organic-coated surfaces, the combination of two surface sensitive techniques – X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) and Time-of-Flight Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) can be extremely powerful. XPS provides quantitative analysis and short-range bonding chemistry from elements on the outermost surface while TOF-SIMS can provide the molecular information needed to positively identify organic species and the spatial resolution needed to show their lateral distributions on the sample surface. This presentation will discuss the complementary attributes of XPS and TOF-SIMS and demonstrate how combining the two is essential to more fully understand organic surfaces.
