Abstract

Current state-of-the-art in backside fault isolation and logic analysis utilizes solid immersion lens (SIL) imaging in the central configuration. An attractive advancement is the development and integration of an aplanatic SIL, which allows significant improvement in resolution, signal acquisition and isolation capabilities, especially for the 22 nm node and beyond. However, aplanatic SIL configurations introduce both chromatic and spherical aberrations. We have developed backing objective designs capable of correcting for chromatic aberrations allowing application in photon emission microscopy, as well as deformable mirror designs and experiments that eliminate spherical aberrations of aplanatic SILs to account for variations in substrate thickness and off-axis imaging.
