Method and Apparatus for Determining the Junction Depth of a Semiconductor Region
A method of determining a value of a depth of a semiconductor junction of a substrate using a photomodulated optical reflectance measurement technique is disclosed. In one aspect, the method includes obtaining a substrate which has at least a first region including the semiconductor junction. The method further includes obtaining a reference region. the method further includes performing at least one sequence of: a) selecting a set of measurement parameters for the photomodulated optical reflectance measurement, b) measuring on the at least a first region a first optical signal representative of the substrate with the semiconductor junction using the selected set of parameters, c) measuring on the reference region a second optical signal using the selected set of parameters, and d) determining the ratio of the first optical signal to the second optical signal, and thereafter extracting from the ratio the depth of the semiconductor junction.
