- E-beam Inspection Technology Examine Hard-to find Defects, but Speed Remains an Issue
The most noticeable advantage of incorporating e-beam technology, even at low doses of less than 1 kGy, in combination treatments is the assured reduction of possible microbial pathogens for commodities unable to withstand traditional thermal treatments.
Samples were irradiated at 1, 5, 10 and 20 kGy doses by E-beam accelerator (model ELV 4, 2.5 MeV, EB-Tech., Ltd., Daejeon, Korea).
Technavio's market research analysts estimate upcoming trends such as the launch of multi-beam e-beam products, which will affect the market dynamics, as these products are targeted to overcome low throughput challenge of e-beam inspection system and will attract more customers.
Although there have been some articles published on thermal initiated crosslinking of SBCs [9, 19, 20, 23, 32-37], little research has been performed on the effects of E-beam radiation initiated crosslinking on SBCs.
A design and software approach to enhance the throughput of e-beam (EB) lithographic exposure.
General topics cover the design, processes and equipment created for production in such topics as mask writing (including e-beam and laser mask writers), conventional and advanced optical masks, NGL masks such as electron beam projection and ion projection lithography, mask processing, materials and pellicles, including descriptions of mask substrates, resists, and optical properties, and mask metrology, inspection, evaluation, and repairs (yes, they can be done).
Suitable as a replacement for transparent ABS, traditional acrylics or polycarbonate, Cyrolite GS-90 compound is gamma, e-beam, and EtO sterilizable.
Electron Beam (E-Beam) coating technology has been added to the growing range of film, printing and converting capabilities at Pliant Corp.
It can be used for materials analysis, subsurface root cause failure analysis, high precision TEM sample preparation, nanostructuring, and e-Beam lithography.
Standard polyethylene pipe (PE), that may have problems with rapid crack propagation and slow crack growth, can be economically treated by E-BEAM Services in a cross linking process that transforms the pipe into rugged, temperature and wear-resistant cross linked polyethylene (PEX) pipe--expanding product applications to underground fuel line and plumbing applications.
