Combined with the Eon[TM] film thickness controller, which is capable of real-time correction of any natural frequency drift in the crystal during heating, any process that requires heated crystals or high measurement accuracy will see exponential improvement, leading to the highest accuracy possible as well as enabling continuous crystal operation
There are now hopes that a smaller Waterford Crystal operation
, employing 50 people, could open in Waterford city in June.
The combined company is expected to have "low-cost polysilicon and crystal operations
", MEMC said in a statement.
