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.
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.

Scientists at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart invented a new and cost-effective method for making X-ray lenses with nanometer-sized features and excellent focusing capabilities. By using an advanced 3D printing technique, a single lens can be manufactured under a minute from polymeric materials with extremely favorable X-ray optical properties, hence the costs of prototyping and manufacturing are strongly reduced. High-throughput and high-yield manufacturing processes of such lenses are sought after world-wide, which is why the scientists have filed a patent for their invention.
X-ray microscopes are fascinating imaging tools. They uniquely combine nanometer-size resolution with a large penetration depth: X-ray microscopy or XRM is the...
Physicists from Konstanz produced extremely short and specifically-shaped electron pulses for materials studies in the femtosecond and attosecond range in collaboration with Munich-based institutes
Our world is basically made up of atoms and electrons. They are very small and move around very rapidly in case of processes or reactions. Although seeing...
Hannover Messe is expanding to the USA – and Fraunhofer IPK is joining in with a trendsetting exhibit. It combines fast and flexible design and application of the shopfloor IT with a digital twin, which ensures transparency even in complex production systems.
For the first time ever, Deutsche Messe organizes a Hannover Messe brand event outside of Germany – and Fraunhofer IPK is taking part.
The properties of materials are determined by their atomic structure. If atoms and electrons change their positions, then the characteristics of a material...
For centuries, scientists have worked to understand the makeup of Jupiter. It's no wonder: this mysterious planet is the biggest one in our solar system by far, and chemically, the closest relative to the Sun. Understanding Jupiter is a key to learning more about how our solar system formed, and even about how other solar systems develop.
But one critical question has bedeviled astronomers for generations: Is there water deep in Jupiter's atmosphere, and if so, how much?
