How CVD Coating Services Enable State of the Art Semiconductor Fabrication

In this webinar, Jim Mattzela, PhD will discuss how the world leaders of the semiconductor industry have utilized SilcoTek coatings to enable state-of-the-art semiconductor fabrication.

Viewers can expect to learn:

  • The dangers of metal ion contamination in environments where purity is required
  • The importance of an inert, amorphous silicon barrier between the metal surface and corrosive etch gases
  • How to lower outgassing and improve pump-down after maintenance by improving moisture and oxidation resistance

All of these learnings contribute to understanding how SilcoTek coatings have helped reduce the cost of ownership for the largest semiconductor fabs in the world.
