Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a method to overcome the limitation of thickness measurement of a micro-patterned thin film. A spectroscopic imaging reflectometer system that consists of an acousto-optic tunable filter, a charge-coupled-device camera, and a high-magnitude objective lens was proposed, and a stack of multispectral images was generated. To secure improved accuracy and lateral resolution in the reconstruction of a two-dimensional thin film thickness, prior to the analysis of spectral reflectance profiles from each pixel of multispectral images, the image restoration based on an iterative deconvolution algorithm was applied to compensate for image degradation caused by blurring.
