Monday, 18 June 2018

SemiCon West is one of the world’s premier semiconductor conferences, bringing together an estimated 20,000 to 50,000 experts from every sector of the semiconductor industry. Hosted in San Francisco at the Moscone Convention Center from July 10-12th, this event showcases the latest advances in semiconductor technology, manufacturing breakthroughs, and innovative programming connected to the semiconductor industry.

Avantes joins an expected nearly 700 exhibitors at the 2018 event. Visit the Avantes booth #747 to see the exciting AvaSpec-Mini-4096MK-II next-generation miniature spectrometer with the highest resolution detector available on the market.

We are excited to feature new Demos in the Avantes booth this year along with some of our newest and most innovative spectrometers.

Thin Film System

The Avantes, Inc. Engineering team, working in partnership with Boulder Optical Design, has developed a miniaturized demo of a Broadband Optical Coating Monitoring system. This system features the AvaSpec-ULS2048CL-EVO spectrometer paired with an innovative custom software application designed by Dr. Alan Streeter of Boulder Optical Design.

Current standards for measuring thin film deposition use reference blanks and provide post-process results only after a deposition program is completed. The Thin Film deposition monitoring system prototype design on display at SemiCon West is revolutionary, providing users the capability to remotely perform real-time reflection or transmission measurements of the deposition process without disturbing the deposition process. See a simulated multi-layer deposition process showing the interference pattern spectra of intervening layers, and a live demonstration of fit quality testing actual spectra to a reference.

This demonstration features the AvaSpec-ULS2048CL-EVO spectrometer, one of the newest offerings in the EVO series which employs the AS7010, the next generation of electronics boards for exceptional dark noise performance paired with the latest CMOS detector array. This instrument is ideal for demanding applications with resolution possible down to 0.06 nm and offering both analog and digital I/O connections to facilitate triggering and process controls and Ethernet connectivity for remote monitoring. This instrument is also available as an OEM unit for bench top or rack mount deployment.

Vacuum chambers are frequently used in spectroscopy applications such as Optical Emission Spectroscopy (OES), plasma etching, and coating operations. One of the benefits of using a fiber optic spectroscopy system is the ability to measure remotely, even in inhospitable environments like under vacuum, with the use of feed-through connectors.  

This demo system features the newest AvaSpec CompactLine spectrometer. The AvaSpec-Mini4096 MK-II spectrometer offers the first on the market 4096-pixel CMOS detector array. The newest star of the CompactLine features truly exceptional resolution down to 0.09 nm/pixel in the same small package our users have come to expect. The CompactLine is ideal for applications that require great resolution and performance but are short on space. In addition to standalone applications, the Mini is mountable and OEM ready.

More Product Features

These demos are just two of the exciting new products we have released at Avantes in the last year. Visit with our sales team and support engineers at the Avantes booth #747 in the South Hall to discover the complete list of new releases and upgrades we offer.
