Abstract [en]

Micro manufacturing is steadily advancing from research labs to spin off companies. Products formerly manufactured by thin film technology using semiconductor processes are being replaced by more efficient full 3D micro manufacturing techniques. Materials have expanded to polymers, metals and ceramics. From being wafer based structures of tens of microns in width and a thickness of up to a micron, feature sizes are now a few microns wide and hundreds of microns deep. This puts very high demands on the geometrical dimensional and roughness measurement tools of the future. This paper gives a review of current metrology tools available for dimensional and surface characterization, and their limitations. It will also present the requirements of future instruments and discuss potential techniques to solve these issues.
