Oxford Instruments To Present On Patterned Sapphire Substrate Etching

Dual language webinar on ways to increase productivity and yield

Oxford Instruments has announced that it will be presenting a dual language web-based seminar entitled "˜Patterned Sapphire Substrate (PSS) Etching Using Innovative Plasma Processing Technology'  on the 4th June 2015.

Presentations will be given in English (Mark Dineen, optoelectronics product manager, Oxford Instruments) and Mandarin Chinese (Young Huang, field and lab applications manager, Oxford Instruments) with opportunities to ask questions in both English and Chinese.

LED manufacture requires critical plasma etch steps (patterned sapphire substrates (PSS), and GaN etch) and deposition steps for passivation, current blocking and mask creation. These are performed by an increasing variety of techniques for example Plasma Enhanced Chemical Deposition (PECVD). 

Mark Dineen commented: "This webinar presentation describes the approaches taken to increase productivity in these processes, both by increasing the process rates and using technology to improve the yield on each wafer."

The webinar will be at 3PM CST on the 4th June 2015.

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.
