HORIBA launches their latest AFM – SignatureSPM

HORIBA attends analytica 2024 – The Laboratory Technology Trade Show and Conference in Munich from April 9 to 12  with nine live demonstration sessions, running from Tuesday to Thursday, starting April 9, 2024.

NEW PRODUCT: Enhance the AFM with Chemical Signature

Dive into the convergence of automated AFM and Raman/Photoluminescence spectrometry with our new chemical AFM. Obtain comprehensive analyses in a single measurement, reduce result acquisition time, and offer powerful chemical characterization to AFM users.

SignatureSPM is the first microscope built on a multimodal characterization platform, integrating an automated Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) with a Raman/Photoluminescence spectrometer, enabling true colocalized measurements of physical and chemical properties.
Through the combined physical and chemical knowledge obtained in a single, and real-time measurement, the researcher can obtain a reliable and comprehensive analysis of the sample, with a shortened time to knowledge as a result of lesser sample handling and a data acquisition of with a high confidence level, thanks to the correlation of difference measurements.

Horiba Debuts new Raman Microscope for Semiconductor Analyses

HORIBA is pleased to introduce the latest addition to its repertoire, the LabRAM Odyssey Semiconductor system. This pioneering Raman/Photoluminescence microscope derives its foundation from the widely acclaimed LabRAM HR Evolution Confocal Raman Microscope, renowned for its exceptional high resolution capabilities. Noteworthy enhancements include the integration of a sample mounting stage adept at accommodating the prevalent 300 mm wafer size, catering directly to the semiconductor industry’s standard requirements.
As compound semiconductors are becoming more complex with a higher number of elements, uniformity assessment on blanket wafers is essential for high quality devices and high yield. The LabRAM Odyssey Semiconductor system will help process engineers qualify the different process steps in a timely manner and with a high level of confidence. With a high spatial resolution mode, the LabRAM Odyssey Semiconductor offers the capability to detect and identify defects and submicron inhomogeneities to understand and give insights about their origin.

The LabRAM Odyssey Semiconductor system includes a 300 mm × 300 mm automated sample stage and an automated objective turret, enabling the acquisition of maps of full wafers of diameter up of 300 mm.  In addition, the DuoScan imaging function permits both variable size laser macrospot for full wafer maps and high spatial submicron step scanning for small area maps.  The range of available excitation lasers, combined with a wide range of spectral detection, from deep UV to near IR, makes the LabRAM Odyssey Semiconductor system a two-in-one Raman and Photoluminescence spectroscopy tool. The “Tilt at midway” autofocus function overcomes possible sample/holder tilt and ensures reliability in uniformity response.

As Raman and Photoluminescence characterisation is moving from the lab to the fab for the emerging 2D materials-based devices, the LabRAM Odyssey Semiconductor system is the perfect tool for metrology technical managers.

Installation of LabRAM Evolution Confocal MicroRAMAN System

Our local technical support team has successfully commissioned a semiconductor variant of the world renowned LabRAM Evolution Confocal MicroRaman System.  Fully equipped with multiple lasers from UV to NIR and  unique upgrades, the system is able to handle Raman as well as Photoluminescence measurements.

The LabRAM Confocal MicroRaman system microscopes are ideally suited for both micro and macro measurements, and offer advanced confocal imaging capabilities in 2D and 3D. The true confocal Raman microscope enables the most detailed images and analyses to be obtained with speed and confidence.  It is widely used for standard Raman analysis such as PhotoLuminescence (PL), it can also be further integrated for other hybrid analysis.

The system was enclosed using a customised laser safety curtain that was customised & designed by our engineers. The implementation of a custom laser safety curtain around the system is a critical safety measure that protects the well-being of lab personnel.
