Thin-Film Metrology Manufacturing Company k-Space Associates, Inc. Announces New Product – kSA ICE
June 13, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsThin-film metrology tool manufacturer k-Space Associates, Inc. announces a new in-situ metrology tool, kSA ICE. This system is the culmination of over 15 years of real-time process monitoring development and refinement by k-Space engineers.
The name kSA ICE stands for Integrated Control for Epitaxy and is specifically designed for Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOVCD) process monitoring. kSA ICE provides real-time temperature, reflectivity, film thickness, curvature/bow, and surface roughness measurement during MOCVD deposition, a critical step in the manufacturing of High Brightness LED's.
kSA ICE has multiple applications in High Brightness LED manufacturing, high power electronics manufacturing, and in materials research and development labs. It is the ideal metrology tool for most types of advanced materials used during MOCVD deposition.
Why kSA ICE is the coolest in-situ MOCVD metrology tool:
"kSA ICE is a powerful culmination of over 15 years of dedicated in-situ metrology development and integrates existing, patented technology from three proven kSA products," says Eric Friedman, Sales and Marketing Director for k-Space. "We have worked closely with leading High Brightness LED manufactures and MOCVD tool manufactures to ensure kSA ICE is easy to integrate and provides the most valuable in-situ metrology information during the deposition process."
kSA ICE can help you gain insight into your MOCVD process, maximize HBLED device performance, and limit variation in the manufacturing process – all of which will increase production efficiency and yield.
