This paper describes the use of the electron microprobe analyzer as an analytical tool for microelectronic devices. A comprehensive description of the construction and working of the electron microprobe analyzer is first presented. Included is a brief description of some of the basic physical laws regarding X-ray generation and analysis.
Three major innovations which have made the probe the tool for microelectronic analysis are described in detail; these are: the electron beam scanning system, secondary electron display, and high resolution nondispersive energy analysis.
Several examples are shown Of how these techniques may be applied to microelectronic analysis.
