Abstract

A simple volumetric thickness measurement method for in-line high-speed inspection is proposed. With a color camera alone, spectrally resolved reflectance in a spatial domain is obtained: a Bayer filter spectrally resolves the reflected signal, and a CMOS sensor acquires three multi-spectral reflectances from RGB data at a single shot. To determine an accurate thickness, a modified reflectance is derived to convert a conventional spectral reflectance throughout a wavelength domain into an adequate form in an RGB domain by considering the characteristics of wide-band multi-spectral acquisition. The proposed method is validated by the measurement of a uniformly deposited SiO2 film and a tapered SiNx film.
