Sub-5 nanometer super resolution imaging for inspection of semiconductor films

In 1994 Stefan Hell published a method to exceed the Abbe optical resolution limit through the selective turning off and on of molecules fluorescence. The life sciences widely use the technique today and we want to explore using it in the semiconductor industry. The topic is to research and develop super resolution imaging for inspection, metrology, and characterization of semiconductor films. Our goal is to attain resolutions on the nanometer scale. Candidates will be involved in the material development of the photochemistry and the hardware required for there use.‚Äč
