Abstract:

It is the purpose of this report to substantiate the previously reported findings on saw damage in silicon wafer surfaces and their dependency on the slicing technique. The measurements reported here concentrate on measurements of damage depth in as-sliced silicon wafers, on saw damage measurements in wafers , on saw damage measurements in wafers sliced horizontally H-wafers compared to wafers sliced vertically V-Wafers, and, finally, on the measurement of fracture strength of silicon crystals and on the seed to tail variation of fracture strength in such crystals.
