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: (Re)solving the jet/cocoon riddle of a gravitational wave event

An international research team including astronomers from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has combined radio telescopes from five continents to prove the existence of a narrow stream of material, a so-called jet, emerging from the only gravitational wave event involving two neutron stars observed so far. With its high sensitivity and excellent performance, the 100-m radio telescope in Effelsberg played an important role in the observations.

In August 2017, two neutron stars were observed colliding, producing gravitational waves that were detected by the American LIGO and European Virgo detectors....

Im Focus: Light from a roll – hybrid OLED creates innovative and functional luminous surfaces

Up to now, OLEDs have been used exclusively as a novel lighting technology for use in luminaires and lamps. However, flexible organic technology can offer much more: as an active lighting surface, it can be combined with a wide variety of materials, not just to modify but to revolutionize the functionality and design of countless existing products. To exemplify this, the Fraunhofer FEP together with the company EMDE development of light GmbH will be presenting hybrid flexible OLEDs integrated into textile designs within the EU-funded project PI-SCALE for the first time at LOPEC (March 19-21, 2019 in Munich, Germany) as examples of some of the many possible applications.

The Fraunhofer FEP, a provider of research and development services in the field of organic electronics, has long been involved in the development of...

Im Focus: Regensburg physicists watch electron transfer in a single molecule

For the first time, an international team of scientists based in Regensburg, Germany, has recorded the orbitals of single molecules in different charge states in a novel type of microscopy. The research findings are published under the title “Mapping orbital changes upon electron transfer with tunneling microscopy on insulators” in the prestigious journal “Nature”.

The building blocks of matter surrounding us are atoms and molecules. The properties of that matter, however, are often not set by these building blocks...
