The SPIE Photomask Technology Symposium, organized by SPIE and BACUS, the International Technical Group of SPIE, provides the world’s largest forum to discuss the latest mask technologies and how they can meet the needs of the rapidly moving semiconductor industry. It will be held Sept. 29-Oct. 1, 2015.
The EOS/ESD Annual Symposium will be held from Sept. 27-Oct. 2, 2015 in Reno, Nev. Founded in 1982, the ESD Association is a professional voluntary association dedicated to advancing the theory and practice of electrostatic discharge (ESD) avoidance.
Day Two of SEMICON West opened with a press conference detailing the future of the semiconductor industry.
A synthetic membrane that self assembles and is easily produced may lead to better gas separation, water purification, drug delivery, and DNA recognition, according to an international team of researchers.
Terra Universal’s electropolished Stainless Steel CleanSeam+ Pass-Through has a unitized internal design that is suitable for the most critical operations, including biopharmaceutical processes which often require an ISO 4 rating.
Public walls coated with a special liquid-repelling nanotech paint are making a splash.
Ice flows and water ice mountains spied by NASA spacecraft support the idea that an interior ocean may be driving geologic activity on Pluto.
The art of kirigami involves cutting paper into intricate designs, like snowflakes. Cornell University physicists are kirigami artists, too, but their paper is only an atom thick, and could become some of the smallest machines the world has ever known.
The miniPOD Cell Therapy Cleanroom from G-CON Manufacturing, Inc. comprises a unidirectional material and personal flow design and can be sanitized by vaporized hydrogen peroxide if environmental count excursions occur.
Camfil Air Pollution Control offers its GoldLink web-based system for fast, accurate and comprehensive dust collection diagnostics.
