As leaders in Ion Beam technology and system manufacture, Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology's Applications and Technology teams regularly produce technical White Papers, and the latest, on Ion Beam Etching, is now available.
Authored by Dr Sebastien Pochon and Dr Dave Pearson, Senior Ion Beam Application and Technology Specialists at the company, the White Paper presents a review of Ion Beam Etch Technology. It considers the main applications and advantages of using this technology for etching processes when compared to technology such as plasma etching. An overview of how an ion beam is generated is first described, and is then followed by a presentation and discussion of process applications of ion beam technology.
The white paper is available by contacting Oxford Instruments, at [email protected]
Comments Robert Gunn, Applications Team Manager at Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology, "In order to offer the very best in ion beam and plasma systems, our experienced teams of applications engineers and technologists continue to develop and research into their areas of expertise, and as a result we offer our customers many technical papers, such as this White Paper, in addition to a process library of over 6000 recipes."
