Etch Selectivity FAQ

What is Etch Selectivity? Etch selectivity is the ratio of etch rates between materials. The formula for etch selectivity is Selectivity = Etch Rate A/Etch Rate B. It is often used when describing the relative etch rates between a mask (used for patterning) and the etch rate of the material of interest....

8 Top Universities with Plasma Processing Technology

Plasma processing technology (e.g., etching, PECVD, and CVD) is a crucial component of semiconductor manufacturing and nanotechnology. As semiconductors become increasingly common across materials and electronics applications, the use cases for plasma processing are constantly increasing. At the same time, nanotechnology is presenting itself as a significant body of research that promises to provide value across industries — both commercially and non-commercially....
