Successful acceptance of scia Trim 200 in Singapore

Last year scia Systems won a public tender of a high precision film thickness trimmer tool for 200 mm wafer processing from the Institute of Microelectronics (IME) at the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore.

We are happy that the scia Trim 200 was shipped, built up and installed despite the difficult conditions due to the pandemic. We like to thank our partner Nanyang Equipment Pte Ltd. for their great job and their support.

scia Mill 150 for Imperial College London

scia Systems gladly announces the purchase of an ion beam milling system scia Mill 150 by Imperial College London – the world top ten university.

The scia Mill 150 will be located at the Michael Uren Biomedical Engineering Research Hub, specifically in the Sir Henry Royce Institute where world leading academics work closely together with industry on the commercialization of fundamental materials research. The Centre focusses on Atoms 2 Devices (A2D) research in functional materials and devices which are core components in key areas such as energy, communications and healthcare.

The scia Mill 150 will be used for top-down fabrication of devices and patterned structures. In conjunction with various lithography techniques available in the laboratory, the scia Mill 150 will be expected to enable a range of materials to be patterned on a micro-and nano-scale.

Two Years of research project – HiPERFORM

Together with 30 project partners from 8 European countries scia Systems is cooperating for more than 3 years on the HiPERFORM-project. The project should pave the way for a decarbonized transport system, with reliable and energy efficient drivetrains. During the first year scia Systems equipped a sputtering chamber with a heated substrate holder by which the required substrate temperature of 800 °C was reached during sputtering. The chamber was transferred to Fraunhofer FEP, where the installation has been finished in year two. Now the system is processing first epi-AlN layers.
