Measuring and Identifying Particles in Ultrapure Water
The refinements of particle counters have permitted particle counting down to a level of 0.3μm. Recent problems in IC processing, however, have made it apparent that those unseen particles in the sub-0.3μm sizes are causing catastrophic “yield busts”.
