  • FTIR Spectroscopy

    Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy bases its functionality on the principle that almost all molecules absorb infrared light. Only the monatomic (He, Ne, Ar, etc) and homopolar diatomic (H2, N2, O2, etc) molecules do not absorb infrared light. Molecules only absorb infrared light at those frequencies where the infrared light affects the dipolar moment of the molecule. In a molecule, ...

  • IRGAS XFlo: process gas FTIR system for flange mounted applications

    Introduction When doing process tool or exhaust abatement tool installations, it is desirable to monitor the exhaust gases as a means of controlling or setting up the tool 1, 2. FTIR, with its rapid analysis speed, high sensitivity, and ease of use, offers one means of monitoring such systems at the time of installation and during the working life of the tool. Often, these applications ...

    Cerex Monitoring Solutions is pleased to announce the release of the third generation model AirSentry FTIR multi-gas open path FTIR analyzer. The decision was made to fully redesign the analyzer to take full advantage of advances in hardware and software technology. The third generation design represents a full reconfiguration of the instrument. Goals were to reduce initial and operating costs ...

  • High-sensitivity, fast-response monitoring of PFC and abatement tool emissions by FTIR spectroscopy

    Semiconductor fab plants are faced with real-time monitoring and reduction of their PFC emissions to meet SEMI Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) requirements. In some cases emissions are continuous, while in other cases they are intermittent or random. Also, in-situ real-time process control is becoming a critical element of yield enhacement. Solution: FTIR Spectroscopy In-Situ ...

  • Comparing TGA, FTIR and fixed filter infrared analyzers for measuring soot levels in in-service lubricants

    Measuring soot in diesel engine oil has become more important as soot levels get higher due to exhaust gas recirculation. As soot isone of the key indicators for the condition of the oil, diesel engine maintenance programs performing regular soot checks can realize cost savings by extending drain periods and reducing used oil disposal. TGA (Thermal Gravimetric Analysis) is the traditional method ...

  • Detection of moisture in ammonia gas

    Problem Statement As technologies advance, so does the request for ultra high purity ammonia. Ultra high purity (UHP) ammonia is used in the semiconductor industries, production of flat panel displays, and a number of other applications. Due to this rising interest in UHP ammonia, manufacturers are having to battle ammonia’s most prominent and damaging impurity--moisture. For ...

  • Advanced Gas Detection Technology supports Arctic Greenhouse Gas Research

    Enormous quantities of greenhouse gases (GHG) exist within Arctic ice and frozen soils, so with the threat of global warming, a clear understanding of the relationship between GHG in the atmosphere and in the ice/soil is vital because melting of permafrost could cause a dangerous climate tipping point. There can be few more challenging environments for monitoring gases, but PhD researcher Martin ...

  • Leak detection in semiconductor fab gas processes

    Problem Statement Often times in semiconductor fabs moisture levels are monitored to ensure that products aren’t damaged by excess moisture in the process. If there are above normal levels of moisture, pinpointing the source of that moisture can be difficult. The moisture could be evolving from impurities in gas tanks or leaks in the sampling lines. One way to avoid downtime ...
