BTU International Experts to Present at ICACC
The interaction of microwave energy with materials can result in direct heating and bring operational costs down compared to a convection/radiant heat transfer process. The hybrid microwave in-line system is capable of processing large sized samples at temperatures between 100°-1150°C in a continuous manner without any interruption, making it convenient for a number of high volume manufacturing type environments. Very high thermal uniformity across the process chamber, even at elevated temperatures, is a unique feature of the system. Case studies such as P- and B-diffusion in Si wafer, ceramics sintering, and material activation will be discussed, as well as safety and cost of ownership considerations.
