This paper will continue a review of the presently available whole-wafer mapping techniques and discuss their applicability to uniformity characterization of various rapid thermal processor (RTP) thin films. These techniques include spectral analysis, beam profile reflectometry, modulatedoptical reflectance, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometry (FTIR), four-point probe, reflective-optical inspection, x-ray topography (XRT), wafer flatness and stress. Selected contour and uniformity maps resulting from analysis of rapid thermal oxidation (modulated-optical reflectance, wafer thickness and stress measurements) and epi-silicon (reflective-optical inspection) RTP thin films will be presented. Comparisons between two different thin film thickness measurement technologies will be discussed
