SwissOptic 3D measurement system
OEM Optics for the Semiconductor Industry.
Resolve the Finest Structures.

The trend of smaller and smaller structures on semiconductor chips continues. For purposes of inspection, optical instruments in the DUV range (< 300 nm) are used today.

With our modern production facility in Heerbrugg, we are able to meet the increasing requirements of the semiconductor industry.

We operate cleanrooms of class ISO 5 (100) with very clean work zones under flow boxes. Special to manufacturing and assembly processes for 193 nm optics, we have high-quality cleanrooms with VOC (volatile organic compounds) controlled air, filtering out the VOC parts to below 2 ng/l (nanograms per liter).

Customer-specific modules to inspect reticles and wafers

A majority of reticles produced, that are used to illuminate wafers, have been inspected by the high-resolution and precise optics from SwissOptic at least once in their lives.
