Semiconductor inspection light source for fluorescence microscopy

Fluorescence microscopy is a powerful tool widely used in semiconductor inspection for various purposes, including defect detection, material characterisation, and quality control.

In semiconductor inspection, fluorescence microscopy leverages the fluorescent properties of certain materials to enhance contrast and reveal specific features that may not be visible with traditional bright-field microscopy techniques.

CoolLED for Fluorescence Illumination

We design and manufacture cutting edge LED illuminators using the very latest in LED technology. Our fast-growing company is based in Hampshire, UK, and our unparalleled technical expertise is founded on optical engineering and mechanical design.

We have led the way in transforming light source technology since our team of four introduced the first commercially available LED illuminator in 2006. Initially answering the highly demanding requirements of the life science microscopy industry, we now also design powerful and stable LED illuminators for a range of applications in the material sciences and industrial inspection arena.

At CoolLED, we understand the critical role that high-quality light sources play in semiconductor inspection processes. That’s why we offer a customised platform for the semiconductor inspection light source designed to optimise your inspection procedures with precision and accuracy.

    Why Choose LEDs for the Semiconductor Inspection Light Source?

    When it comes to the semiconductor inspection light source, the illumination technology has come a long way since mercury and metal halide lamps. LED technology has now taken centre stage for a range of reasons:

    • Stability: Irradiance declines over the lifetime of a mercury or metal halide lamp, whereas LEDs are much more stable over time.
    • Control: LEDs can be easily controlled. They can be switched on and off with precise microsecond timing, and LED irradiance can also be modulated electronically. Moreover, control can be achieved within software for seamless integration into the complete inspection system.
    • Speed: Another advantage of solid-state LED illumination is the speed of electronic control, where triggering is in the order of micro-seconds. Removing the need for a mechanical shutter further improves imaging speed, increasing inspection times and therefore the throughput of the inspection workflow.
    • Up-time: Lamps frequently need replacing, whereas LEDs are long-lived. This maximises up-time of the system in the inspection workflow.
    • Safety and the environment: Mercury in lamps is hazardous to people and the environment. In addition to this, LEDs are more energy efficient and emit much less heat.
