  • Development of on-line instruments for monitoring of methane and NMTHC at PPB and PPM levels without matrix effects

    Monitoring of methane and Non-Methane Total Hydrocarbons (NMTHC) is an important tool for process monitoring. In the microelectronics industry, the silicon substrates (wafers) are stored in containers, named FOUP (Front Opening Unified Pod) made in polymers (PC, PEEK, COP, PEI). Such materials are able to adsorb the Volatile Molecular Contaminants (VMC) and subsequently outgas these ones in ...
