  • Publication number: 20210057245
    Abstract: Film information about a thin film formed on the front surface of a semiconductor wafer, substrate information about the semiconductor wafer, and an installation angle of an upper radiation thermometer are set and input. Emissivity of the front surface of the semiconductor wafer formed with a multilayer film is calculated based on the various kinds of information. Further, a weighted average efficiency of the emissivity of the front surface of the semiconductor wafer is determined based on a sensitivity distribution of the upper radiation thermometer. Front surface temperature of the semiconductor wafer at the time of heat treatment is measured using the determined weighted average efficiency of the emissivity. The emissivity is determined based on the film information and the like, so that the front surface temperature of the semiconductor wafer can be accurately measured even when thin films are formed in multiple layers.

  • Patent number: 10562183
    Abstract: A position/force controller includes a function-dependent force/speed distribution conversion unit that, on the basis of speed, position and force information relating to a position based on an action of an actuator and control reference information, performs a conversion to distribute control energy to at least one of speed or position energy and force energy according to a function that is being realized. A control amount calculation unit calculates at least one of a speed or position control amount and a force energy on the basis of at least one of the speed or position energy and the force energy distributed by the force/speed distribution conversion unit. An integration unit integrates speed or position control amount with force control amount and, to return an output to the actuator, performs a reverse conversion on the speed or position control amount and the force control amount and determines an input to the actuator.
