Hiden Unveils SIMS Tool Family Trio

Hiden Analytical is offering the choice of three initial equipment levels to suit a broad spread of budget capacities
Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) is a versatile, highly-sensitive technique for surface analysis and surface depth profiling of diverse materials.

The technique can reveal details of contamination in bubblers such as TMGa and TMAl used in the MOCVD growth of III-V semiconductors.

Hiden Analytical has expanded its primary system options to offer the choice of three initial equipment levels to suit a broad spread of budget capacities. All systems offer full UHV operation and expandability to the top-level specification.

The dual-mode MAXIM mass spectrometer features operation both in the secondary ion mode and in the secondary neutral (SNMS) quantification mode.

The Foundation SIMS System includes the IG20 fine-focus (50 µm) oxygen/argon ion gun, multiple sample holder and primary ion beam monitor.



An uplifted version - the SIMS Workstation - is configured for higher throughput rates with the addition of a sample load lock and sample manipulator, together with charge-neutralising electron flood gun and system bakeout facility.

The SIMS Workstation Plus has the most comprehensive specification with the addition of the IG5C Caesium ion gun for electronegative species, having a spot size of just 20 µm.



The MASsoft Professional SIMS PC data system provides automated measurement of positive and negative ions and of neutral species. It enables full control of the mass spectrometer and ion gun operating parameters and ion beam raster, with acquired data presented in real time.

The ESM LabVIEW SIMS Imaging program acquires, stores and displays the data for presentation in the form of elemental surface maps with both 2D and 3D view capabilities.

Times for analysis are down to just 150 milliseconds.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
