Abstract

A fiber bundle has been designed for measurement of gas concentrations in a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) chamber. The bundle is broadband, covering the spectrum range from 500 to 6000 cm-1. Using this bundle, we have designed Fourier Transform infrared (FTIR) sampling configurations with reduced beam divergence (from 0.4 to 0.1 rad) and focal spot diameters (from 12 to 4 mm). The FTIR spectrum of tetraethoxysilane vapors in a CVD chamber was determined with the bundle and modified SAM connectors. An ellipsoid reflector was designed that yielded improved signal-to-noise ratios (SNR’s) in the fiber-based spectra by a factor of 2. The incorporation of this reflector in spectrometers by use of the fiber bundle has the potential to reduce the sampling times for spectra while retaining acceptable SNR’s.
