Contamination Wafer Standards, Calibration Wafer Standards and Silica Particle Wafer Standards are produced with a Particle Deposition System, which will first analyze a PSL size peak or silica size peak with a Differential Mobility Analyzer (DMA). A DMA is a highly accurate particle scanning tool, combined with condensation particle counter and computer control to isolate a highly accurate size peak, based on NIST Traceable particle size calibration. Once the size peak is verified, the particle size stream is directed to the prime silicon, wafer standard surface. The particles are counted just before being deposited on the wafer surface, typically as a full deposition across the wafer. Alternatively, up to 8 particle sizes can be deposited as spot depositions at specific locations around the wafer. Wafer standards provide highly accurate, size peaks for size calibration of KLA-Tencor Surfscan SP1, KLA-Tencor Surfscan SP2, KLA-Tencor Surfscan SP3, KLA-Tencor Surfscan SP5, Surfscan SPx, Tencor 6420, Tencor 6220, Tencor 6200, ADE, Hitachi and Topcon SSIS tools and wafer inspection systems.

PSL Spheres size standards and silica size standards are scanned by a differential mobility analyzer to determine true size peak. Once the size peak is analyzed, then the wafer standard can be deposited as a full deposition or a spot deposition, or a multiple spot deposition wafer standards. Silica size peak at 100 nano meters (0.1 microns) is scanned above and the DMA detects a true silica size peak at 101nm.
