Home > Press > FEI Announces New Verios Extreme High Resolution SEM: System Delivers Powerful Resolution and Contrast on a Fast, Easy-to-Use Platform for Precise Measurement of Sensitive Materials in Semiconductor and Materials Science Applications

Abstract:
FEI (Nasdaq:FEIC), a leading instrumentation company providing imaging and analysis systems
for research and industry, extends its leadership in the high-resolution scanning electron microscopy (SEM) market with the launch of the new Verios(TM) XHR SEM. The Verios provides the
sub-nanometer resolution and enhanced contrast needed for precise measurements on beam-sensitive materials in advanced semiconductor
manufacturing and materials science applications.

FEI Announces New Verios Extreme High Resolution SEM: System Delivers Powerful Resolution and Contrast on a Fast, Easy-to-Use Platform for Precise Measurement of Sensitive Materials in Semiconductor and Materials Science Applications

Hillsboro, OR | Posted on July 30th, 2012

"The Verios XHR SEM extends the lifetime of SEM as an important
measurement tool in semiconductor process control labs by allowing
engineers to measure beam-sensitive materials and structures that are
too small for conventional SEM," stated Rudy Kellner, vice president &
general manager, Electronics Business Unit, FEI. "When combined with
our IC3D(TM) software, the Verios is a robust instrument that can
provide the precise measurements they need to control processes at the
22nm technology node and below."

Trisha Rice, FEI's vice president & general manager of the Materials
Science Business Unit adds, "For materials scientists, the Verios will
also enable important new insights by extending sub-nanometer imaging
and characterization to novel materials being developed today. This
will allow researchers to capture the high resolution, high contrast
images required, without the need to transition to TEM or other imaging
techniques."

The Verios is the second generation of FEI's leading XHR SEM family. At
low kV, where the performance of conventional SEM degrades
significantly, the Verios system's advanced optics deliver impressive
sensitivity to surface detail. It allows any user to switch quickly
between various operating conditions, maintain sample cleanliness, and
obtain sub-nanometer resolution at any accelerating voltage from 1 kV
to 30 kV.

In addition to its extreme high-resolution performance, the Verios
introduces new detection technologies. The optimized signal collection
and advanced filtering abilities not only provide higher and more
flexible contrast generation, but also allow for a greater range of
samples to be investigated. Many beam-sensitive or non-conductive
materials can now be accurately observed at the nanoscale, without any
preparation.
