Project Overview

Semiconductor Etch & Clean - North America

A North American manufacturer of capital equipment used in semiconductor wafer fabrication sought help on cleaning wafers during photoresist and etching. Sabol modeled the clean and etch bath (mixture of HF/NH3/HCl/H2O) chemistries with rigorous simultaneous equilibrium analysis (nine independent aqueous species, including activity coefficients.) Sabol also provided insight on the temperature dependence, application of Pourbaix diagrams, and use of non-aqueous solvent systems for wafer cleaning and etching.
