Background: Black quartz glass for ultra-clean chips

06.09.2018

SEMICON Taiwan 2018: Because Heraeus Black Quartz (HBQ®) contains no elements like tungsten or carbon, it is perfectly suited for semiconductor manufacturing

Heraeus has developed a specially colorized quartz glass consisting exclusively of silicon and oxygen and absorbing and radiating heat without conducting it within the quartz glass body.


Heraeus Black Quartz

These properties are very interesting for the semiconductor industry: Even the tiniest trace impurities during manufacturing will result in a defective microchip, which is then unusable. Traditional colorized quartz materials contain device killing elements such as tungsten or carbon.

HBQ® (Heraeus Black Quartz) provides an over-all impurity level of below 20ppm like other natural quartz materials which makes it suitable for sensitive semiconductor applications.

Heraeus Quarzglas Germany closes the material gap for heat radiation control in process chambers. HBQ® offers a high absorption of over 95 percent in a wide range of wavelength from UV, through visible to mid-IR (heat radiation), and emissivity values of beyond 90 percent which is a unique property in the group of silicon dioxide based materials.

With these properties HBQ® represents a new option in heat management applications. The quartz glass is also used in special light sources from Heraeus to ensure homogeneous heat dissipation – those are used in semiconductor manufacturing or for vacuum processes in photovoltaics.

Heraeus Quarzglas is the only supplier offering materials for full heat radiation control with transparent, reflective or absorbing properties, meeting the highest purity standards of semiconductor applications.

Im Focus: Better thermal conductivity by adjusting the arrangement of atoms

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.

In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Im Focus: First-ever visualizations of electrical gating effects on electronic structure

Scientists have visualised the electronic structure in a microelectronic device for the first time, opening up opportunities for finely-tuned high performance electronic devices.

Physicists from the University of Warwick and the University of Washington have developed a technique to measure the energy and momentum of electrons in...

Im Focus: Megakaryocytes act as „bouncers“ restraining cell migration in the bone marrow

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.

Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...

Im Focus: Artificial neural network resolves puzzles from condensed matter physics: Which is the perfect quantum theory?

For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.

Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...

Im Focus: Extremely hard yet metallically conductive: Bayreuth researchers develop novel material with high-tech prospects

An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".

The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
