X-ray fluorescence imaging is a novel non-destructive method to obtain sub-100nm spatial resolution elemental maps with short data acquisition times. The method has a wide range of applicability in the field of semiconductor manufacturing and semiconductor failure analysis. Imaging of copper interconnects on ICs for the location of voids and shorts is one particular application that is relevant for current and future needs of nondestructive inspection and failure analysis of backend processes.
