Metrology for Semiconductors: Part I
Semiconductors are a critical strategic technology that contribute to the UK’s prosperity, security, and resilience. Semiconductors already have a foundational role in society, as well as enabling important future technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, next-generation communications, and quantum technologies. The manufacture of semiconductor devices is enabled by cutting-edge metrology, due to the extreme demands for nanoscale precision, material quality, and process control.
The UK semiconductor manufacturing industry has particular strength in compound semiconductors and other advanced materials, whose unique properties enable applications that are not possible with the more established silicon technology. These applications include laser technology, telecommunications, sensors, photonics, photovoltaics, and quantum devices.
This webinar is the first in a series on metrology for semiconductors where we will present a broad range of topics from NPL and other partners related to measurement science that is supporting the UK’s semiconductor industry.
