Manufacture of semiconductors involves semiconductor silicon wafer production, wafer processing, assembly, and testing. Rapid thermal processing refers to the heating of silicon wafers to temperatures above 2,192 degree Fahrenheit within seconds to attain nitridation, dopant activation, metal reflow, thermal oxidation, and chemical vapor deposition within the silicon wafers of a semiconductor. Silicon wafers are heated using either lamps or lasers. Rapid thermal processing equipment offers advantages such as lower power consumption and cost savings. Rapid thermal annealing equipment is used to activate dopants in the wafer and for interfacial reaction of metal contacts. Rapid thermal processing has been gaining popularity among semiconductor manufacturers because of its use in circuit processing, CMOS production, and in the Microelectronics industry.
