Spatially resolved extreme ultraviolet reflectometry is presented in application to a local characterization of thin non-uniform contamination layers. Sample reflectivity mapping is performed, demonstrating high chemical sensitivity of the technique. Amorphous Al2O3 and carbon are determined as the contaminants of the studied silicon wafer. The results correlate with those obtained by energy-filtering photoemission electron microscopy. A laboratory tool is developed that is capable of multi-angle (2°–15°) and spectrally broadband (9.5–17 nm) extreme ultraviolet reflectometry at grazing incidence combined with a reduced sample illumination spot size, enabling spatially resolved metrology. A minimum EUV spot size of 25×30 μm in the sample plane is achieved experimentally.
