3-1. Large Point Defects Defects which exhibit a clear shape to the unassisted eye and are > 50 microns across. These features include spikes, adherent particles, chips and craters. Large point defects less than 3 mm apart count as one defect.
3-2. Scratches Grooves or cuts below the surface plane of the wafer having a length-to-width ratio of greater than 5 to 1. Scratches are speci ed by the number of discrete scratches times the total length in fractional diameter.
3-5. Backside Cleanliness Veri ed by inspecting for a uniform color to the wafer backside. Note there is a darker region near the center of some higher doped wafers. Backside cleanliness speci ed as percent area clean.
3-8. 3C Inclusions Regions where step- ow was interrupted during epi layer growth. Typical regions are generally triangular although more rounded shapes are sometimes seen. Count once per occurrence. Two inclusions within 200 microns count as one.
3-9. Comet Tails Comet tails have a discrete head and trailing tail. These features are aligned parallel to the major at. Usually, all comet tails tend to be of the same length. Count once per occurrence. Two comet tails within 200 microns count as one.
3-10. Carrots Similar to comet tails in appearance except they are more angular and lack a discrete head. If present, these features are aligned parallel to the major at. Usually,any carrots present tend to be of the same length. Count once per occurrence. Two carrots within 200 microns count [...]
