Plasma Workshop

Workshop Overview

April 08, 2019 - 11:00

Aim: To learn about understanding and supervision of plasma processes in a manufacturing environment. Experts from the industry and plasma sensor suppliers share their know-how on using and process simulations  and plasma sensors in a manufacturing environment or present open issues.
The use of plasma process models and complementary plasma sensors supports better fault detection and is often mandatory for effective fault classification. Rapid chamber conditioning and chamber matching are also highlighted during this workshop.
