A method for auto-sequencing of plasma processing system for concurrent processing of several substrates. The method autonomously sequence processing and move substrates in different directions as necessary. The method moves two substrate trays together into the processing chamber for substrate exchange, and remove the trays from the chamber one at a time. When needed, the method moves one tray into the processing chamber for removal of the susceptor without exposing the chamber to atmospheric environment.

An architecture for substrate processing system wherein a group of several substrates are transferred simultaneously and processed simultaneously. Robot arm is used to transfer the substrates using a substrate hanger attached to the end thereof. The hanger is configured to slide above the substrates and pick up the substrates using hanger extensions that slide under the substrates and hold the substrates at their peripheral edge. By hanging the substrates from above, no regards to the position of lift pins is necessary. Also, by constructing the hanger to be symmetrical, the hanger motion is strictly linear and need not rotate. This saves transfer time and avoids collision with lift pins. Also, the symmetry and linear motion of the hanger maintains the substrates at the same relative position throughout the transfer and processing sequence.

Optical apparatus includes a mount, which holds a workpiece. An array of optical heads project respective patterns of radiation onto the workpiece. A calibration assembly captures images of the respective patterns. A motion assembly, on which the calibration assembly is mounted, transports the calibration assembly among a plurality of different positions between the array of the optical heads and the mount so as to intercept and image, at each of the different positions, a respective pattern projected by a different one of the optical heads. A processor processes the images captured by the calibration assembly at the different positions so as to monitor operation of the apparatus.
