Oct 2006
Eleven employees of Indium Corp., a Clinton, N.Y., supplier of electronics and semiconductor assembly materials and of commercial-grade indium, recently earned Six Sigma Green Belt certification, which demonstrates proficiency in developing and executing design experiments to support continuous process improvement. They are: Stephen Foster, Mike McNamara, Bob Jarrett, Nicole Palma, Runsheng Mao, Stephen Smith, Hong-Sik Hwang, Ed Gudlauski, Leroy Page, Anthony Piccione and Dave Sbiroli. Process expert Ronald C. Lasky, PhD, a senior technologist at Indium and a visiting professor at Dartmouth College's Thayer School of Engineering, provided the training at Dartmouth.



GLOSSARY
electronics
That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
indium
Metal used in components of the crystalline semiconductor alloys indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs), indium gallium arsenide phosphide (InGaAsP), and the binary semiconductor indium phosphide (InP). The first two are lattice-matched to InP as the light-emitting medium for lasers or light-emitting diodes in the 1.06- to 1.7-µm range, and the last are used as a substrate and cladding layer.
