Ultratech LSA101 Dual-Beam Laser Spike Anneal System
Built on the customizable Unity Platform™, LSA101 with the dual-beam option expands the process space by adding a second low-power laser beam that adds process flexibility and enables millisecond annealing with a low substrate temperature. Inserting a millisecond anneal step post-junction formation, such as gate stack formation, silicide or post-silicide anneal, has been shown to improve leakage and device reliability, while reducing contact resistance and improving both performance and yield. The LSA101 delivers high flexibility and extendibility for advanced annealing applications and is currently in high-volume production for advanced planar and FinFET devices.
