Spin Defect on Edge

SPIN DEFECT ON EDGE - Semiconductor Wafer Macro Defect Image - 1

Spin Defect on the edge of the semiconductor wafer is a coater issue that effects the wafer edge. A spin defect appearing on the edge of the semiconductor wafer is typically due to lack of resist volume to sufficiently coat the entire wafer. This type of defect can also be caused by other process problems including topography process problems.
