An advanced technique for site-specific Atom Probe Tomography (APT) is presented. An APT sample is prepared from a targeted semiconductor device (commercially available product based on 14nm finFET technology). Using orthogonal views of the sample in STEM while FIB milling, a viable APT sample is created with the tip of the sample positioned over the lightly-doped drain (LDD) region of a pre-defined PFET. The resulting APT sample has optimal geometry and minimal amorphization damage.
