Mask Alignment System  

The Quintel Ultraline Q 4000-6 is a contact mask aligner used in conventional UV optical photolithography.  It can resolve features down to 1 micron or better. It is equipped with an infrared (IR) camera system for frontside to backside alignment  by imaging thru the wafer.  Exposures can be performed in contact or proximity mode.  Contact printing gives the best resolution, but more prone to defects and mask damage due to direct contact.  In proximity mode, a small air gap (~10 to 50 um) separates the mask and wafer, and the resolution is approximately equal to the square root of the product of the wavelength and the gap distance.
