Work In Progress
This article is still under construction. It may contain factual errors. Content is subject to change.
The Solaris 150 is a manual loading RTP system for R&D and pre-production. The Solaris 150 can process up to 152.4mm substrates at a temperature range from RT- 1250 degrees. The unique temperature measurement system of the Solaris requires virtually no calibration for different wafer types and backside emmissivity differences.
The Solaris uses a unique PID process controller that ensures accurate temperature stability and uniformity. The system can accommodate four interlocked MFCs for gas mixing and forming gas processing. The Solaris is designed for silicon implant annealing and monitoring and compound semiconductor implant activation and ohmic alloying.
Wafer handling: Manual loading of wafer into the oven, single wafer processing.
Wafer sizes: 2", 3", 4", 5" and 6" wafers and pieces.
Ramp up rate: 10-200C per second, user-controllable.
Recommended steady state duration: 0-600 seconds per step.
Ramp down rate: Temperature Dependent, max 150°C per second.
Recommended steady state temperature range: 300C - 1250°C
Thermocouple temperature accuracy: + 2.5C
Temperature repeatability: + 3C or better at 1150C wafer-to-wafer.
