Abstract:In this study, time-of-flight (TOF) secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) was compared against dynamic SIMS to determine detection limits and background levels for nine impurities: Li, Na, K, Al, Ni, As, In, Fe, and Cu. Statistics were gathered by measuring six material test structure samples from six different liquid phase epitaxy (LPE) HgCdTe double layer heterojunction (DLHJ) wafers. Also included is a comparison between dynamic SIMS and TOF-SIMS capabilities.
