What are Photomask Inspection?


Photomask inspection is a crucial step in semiconductor manufacturing. It involves the examination of photomasks, which are precise quartz plates with microscopic patterns used to transfer circuit patterns onto semiconductor wafers. In this process, sophisticated imaging systems are employed to detect defects like particles, pinholes, or pattern deviations on the photomask. This inspection ensures that the photomask is of high quality and integrity, which is essential for producing semiconductor devices without defects.
