High integration density is an ongoing challenge for the quality and reliability of device components that generate strong demand for more sophisticated methods for failure analysis. New-engineered products need to secure a high level of reliability, sustainability, and longevity to meet the international quality standards.

“Semiconductor device fabrication has seen continuously shrinking device dimensions and higher integration density on the one hand and more complex device geometries and sophisticated 3D architectures on the other hand. The rapid evolution and short development cycles of these technologies already impose tremendous challenges on process control and even more on failure analysis for today’s semiconductor research and industry. Considering emerging topics such as 2D materials and quantum devices, such tasks will even aggravate the requirements for inspection and metrology,” comments Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jörg Schulze, the head of the Fraunhofer IISB.

Detection and classification of nanometer-sized material defects require characterization methods with a resolution in the nanometer range. In this symposium, the latest approaches will be presented that help the industry develop robust electronic products and support reliable operation under environmental conditions of different kinds.

“Scanning probe microscopy with its very high local resolution and its huge variety of measurement modes and flexible integration of additional characterization techniques can, therefore, play a significant role for providing both, research and industry solutions for the aforementioned key challenges. This symposium’s mission is to bring you in touch with recent trends and solutions,” adds Prof. Schulze.

The program will include keynote talks ranging from case studies in the semiconductor device applications, innovative methods and tools for material characterization and defect review, emerging applications in the electronic industry up to future methods for increasing line productivity, efficiency, and yield.

The symposium is going to be held as a hybrid event, on-site at IISB in Erlangen, Germany and online via Zoom platform with free access for the global audience.
