- eBeam Initiative Launches Contest
The eBeam Initiative, a forum promoting a new design-to-manufacturing approach known as design for e-beam (DFEB), has launched a crossword puzzle contest to help educate the industry on DFEB, which reduces mask costs for low-volume production and prototypes, resulting in more designs and faster time to market. Visit www.ebeam.org to download and solve the puzzle, then enter the mystery word for a chance to win an Amazon Kindle. The drawing will close Sept. 30 with the winner formally announced the following day.
- 1. A framelike structure that serves to restrict the viewing area of the screen whenplaced before a television picture tube. 2 In photolithography, a photomask (or mask) is typically a patterned transparent plate or an opaque plate with patterned holes or transparencies that uses a laser light source to transfer and print the pattern by an etching process onto a substrate that is typically a silicon wafer used in integrated circuitry.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
