  • Patent number: 10444168
    Abstract: At least two values of an X-ray irradiation width are set for a single specimen. A rocking curve is measured for each of the X-ray irradiation widths. A rocking curve width value is determined for each of the rocking curves. The values of the X-ray irradiation width and the values of the rocking curve width are plotted on a planar coordinate system having a vertical axis representing the rocking curve width value and a horizontal axis representing the X-ray irradiation width value, and a rocking curve width shift line is determined based on the plotted points. A gradient of the rocking curve width shift line is determined. A curvature radius of the specimen is determined based on the gradient. The amount of bowing of a single-crystal substrate under measurement can be measured without a need to move the single-crystal substrate for reliable measurement with a small amount of error.
